1. the black ball's initial momentum is now shared by both balls

find the initial momentum (it is conserved)

use the combined mass to find the new velocity

2. Given:
M1 = 2 kg, V1 = 10 m/s.
M2 = 3 kg, V2 = 0.
V3 = Velocity of M1 and M2 after collision.

p before = p after.
M1*V1 + M2*V2 = M1*V3 + M2*V3.
2 * 10 + 3 * 0 = 2*V3 + 3*V3,
V3 = m/s.
