Conservation of momentum requires that:  AA BB A B f mv m m v   Where A is the satellite, B is the meteor and f v is the common velocity after impact. Solving for the final velocity results in f AB v mm The velocities of A and B prior to impact can be expressed in an x-y coordinate system as: ˆ 7/ ˆˆ ˆ ˆ 12( cos(45 ) sin(45 ) ) / 8.49 8.49 A B vi m s j m s i j  Substituting in these values results in an expression for the final velocity
