Two manned satellites approaching one another at a relative speed of 0.100 m/s intend to dock. The first has a mass of 4.00 ✕ 10^{3} kg, and the second a mass of 7.50 ✕ 10^{3} kg. Assume that the positive direction is directed from the second satellite towards the first satellite.(a) Calculate the final velocity after docking, in the frame of reference in which the first satellite was originally at rest.
