Two clay balls of equal mass and speed strike each other head-on, stick together, and come to rest. Kinetic energy is certainly not conserved. What happened to it? How is momentum conserved?

							Two clay balls of equal mass and speed strike each other head-on, stick together, and come to rest. Kinetic energy is certainly not conserved, which means the collision is inelastic, because in an inelastic collision kinetic energy is not conserved only momentum is conserved. This signifies that the total kinetic energy of the two clay balls remains not constant; that is the total kinetic energy before the collision not equal to the total kinetic energy after the collision. But the momentum is conserved and this signifies that the total momentum of the two clay ball remains constant; that is the total momentum before the collision equals to the total momentum after the collision. Therefore after collision the whole mass (combination of two clay ball) will move with constant velocity.
