Conservation of Kinetic Energy?

2 identical masses \(a\) and \(b\) hang freely on strings of equal length. Mass a is brought to a height of \(H\) above its initial free hanging position and released, eventually striking mass \(b\). Both masses stick together upon collision. What is the maximum height reached by masses \(a\) and \(b\) after collision?
