47. This is a completely inelastic collision, but Eq. 9-53 (V=m1m1+m2v1i) is not easily applied since that equation is designed for use when the struck particle is initially stationary. To deal with this case (where particle 2 is already in motion), we return to the principle of momentum conservation: m1v1→
