Two cars collide at an icy intersection and stick together afterward. The first car has a mass of 1250 kg and is approaching at 9.5 m/s due south. The second car has a mass of 550 kg and is approaching at 17 m/s due west.Calculate the direction of the final velocity, in degrees south of west, of the cars.What is the change in kinetic energy, in joules, for the collision? (This energy goes into deformation of the cars.)

Two cars collide at an intersection. Car A, with a mass of 2000 kg, is going from west to east, while car of mass 1500 kg, is going from north to south at 15 m/s. As a result, the two cars become enmeshed and move as one. As an expert witness, you inspect the scene and determine that, after the collision, the enmeshed cars moved at an angle of 52∘ south of east from the point of impact. How fast...
