a chunk of clay in the shape of Bugs Bunny has a mass of 0.75 and an initial velocity of 5.0 m/s to the right. a second chunk of clay is in the shape of Elmer Fudd has a mass of 0.25 kg and an initial velocity of 3.0 m/s to the left. what is the composite velocity ater the clay figures collide?

1. BBmass*5+EFmass*(-3)=(BBmass+EFmass)V
solve for V
