Question 1 1. What two particles are attracted to each other?

Question 2 2. In space, a spacecraft with its engines turned off will move with constant speed in the same _____.

Question 3 3. Why is the Law of Conservation of Mass useful in chemistry?

Question 4 4. You have a bowling ball weighing 5.4 kg, which you throw at a velocity of 10 m/s. It hits a 3.6 kg ball sitting still in the lane (0 m/s). The bowling balls are made of wet clay, so when they hit, they stick together. Find the velocity of the two balls stuck together after the collision. (hint: The equation for conservation of momentum of an elastic collision is: m{1} * v{1i} + m{2} * v{2i} = m{1} * v{1f} + m{2} * v{2f}).
