9.59. Model: Model the three balls of clay as particle 1 (moving north), particle 2 (moving west), and particle 3 (moving southeast). The three stick together during their collision, which is perfectly inelastic. The momentum of the system is conserved. Visualize: Solve: The three initial momenta are ( )( ) i1 1 i1 ˆˆ 0.020 kg 2.0 m/s 0.040 kg m/s pm v j j == = GG () ( ) i2 2 i2 0.030 kg 3.0 m/s 0.090 kg m/s v i i = ( ) i3 3 i3 0.040 kg 4.0 m/s cos45
