Two objecrts, each of mass 1.5kg, are moving in the same straight line but in opposite directions. The velocity of each object is 2.5m/s before the collision during which they stick together. What will be the collision?

m1 = m2 = 1.5 kg
u1 = 2.5 m/s
u2 = -2.5 m/s
Final velocity after collision is v = ?
By law of conservation of linear momentum,
m1u1 + m2u2 = m1v1 + m2v2
Velocities of both masses will be same after collision,
1.5 (2.5) + 1.5 (-2.5) = 1.5 x v + 1.5 x v
0 = 1.5 x v
Thus, v = 0 m/s
This means, both the objects will come to rest after collision.
