A body of mass m moving with a constant velocity v hits another body of the same mass moving with the same velocity v but in the opposite direction and sticks to it. The velocity of the compound body after collision is

a
v
b
2v
c
Zero
d
v/2

detailed solution

Correct option is C

Initial momentum of the system = mv−mv=0As body sticks together ∴ final momentum = 2mVBy conservation of momentum 2mV = 0 ∴ V = 0
