Question

Two cars of equal mass are traveling as shown in the figure below just before undergoing a collision. Before the collision, one of the cars has a speed of 17 m/s along +x, and the other has a speed of 29 m/s along +y. The cars lock bumpers and then slide away together after the collision. What are the magnitude and direction of their final velocity?

Answer #1

A 1000-kg car approaches an intersection traveling north at 20.0
m/s.
A car of equal mass approaches the same intersection traveling
east at 22.0 m/s.
The two cars collide at the intersection and lock together.
Ignoring any external forces that act on the cars during the
collision, what is the velocity ,aka, magnitude and direction, of
the cars immediately after collision?

a car (m1=2000kg) is traveling east with a velocity of 20i m/s.
this car collieds with a second car (m2=1500kg) that is traveling
north with a velocity 20j m/s. these 2 cars tangle together when
they collide.
what was the total kinetic energy before the collision?
what is the magnitude of the momentum of the 2 cars (as 1
system)?
what is the speed of the combined mass just after the
collision?
what is the direction traveled in degrees?

An automobile has a mass of 2300 kg and a velocity of positive
16 m/s. It makes a rear end collision with a stationary car whose
mass is 1800 kg. The cars locked bumpers and skid off together with
the wheels locked. A) what is the velocity of the two cars just
after the collision. B) find the impulse, magnitude and direction,
the acts on the skidding cars from just after the collision until
they come to a halt. C)...

Two cars approach an ice-covered intersection. One car, of mass
1.21 X 10^3 kg, is initially traveling north at 12.1 m/s. The other
car, of mass 1.62 X 10^3 kg, is initially traveling east at 12.1
m/s. The cars reach the intersection at the same instant, collide,
and move off coupled together. Find the velocity of the center of
mass of the two-car system just after the collision.
magnitude: ______
direction: _____ north of east

Car A of mass 1,274 kg is traveling east at 13.2 m/s when it
collides with car B of mass 1,596 kg which is traveling at 14.6 m/s
at 71.4 degrees N of W. The two cars stick together after the
collision. What is the magnitude of the final velocity of the
cars?

A car of mass 2500 kg collides with a truck of mass 4400 kg, and
just after the collision the car and truck slide along, stuck
together, with no rotation. The car's velocity just before the
collision was <31, 0, 0> m/s, and the truck's velocity just
before the collision was <-13, 0, 24> m/s.
b)what is the increase in internal energy of the car and truck
(thermal energy and deformation)?

Two cars collide at an icy intersection and stick together
afterward. The first car has a mass of 1250 kg and is approaching
at 6.5 m/s due south. The second car has a mass of 750 kg and is
approaching at 17 m/s due west.
a.) Calculate the magnitude of the final velocity, in meters per
second, of the cars.
b.) Calculate the direction of the final velocity, in degrees
south of west, of the cars.
c.) What is the...

Two-car, 2-D collision. Two cars with masses
m1 = 1200 kg and m2 = 1500 kg are approaching an
intersection. Car 1 has a velocity v1 = 15.0 m/s towards
the east and car 2 has a velocity v2 = 20.0 m/s towards
the north. The two cars reach the intersection at the same time and
collide and lock bumpers and after the collision travel as a single
wreckage.
(a) What is the magnitude and direction of their velocity after...

Two cars collide at an icy intersection and stick together
afterward. The first car has a mass of 1300 kg and was approaching
at 5.00 m/s due south. The second car has a mass of 900 kg and was
approaching at 23.0 m/s due west.
(a) Calculate the final velocity (magnitude in m/s and direction
in degrees counterclockwise from the west) of the cars. (Note that
since both cars have an initial velocity, you cannot use the
equations for conservation...

Ball A has a mass of 100 kg; it is traveling to the right at 6.2
m/s. Ball B has a mass of 120 kg; it is traveling to the left at
4.7 m/s.(a) Assume an inelastic collision (they stick together).
Determine velocity at which the two move off together. Give speed
and direction. Pay attention to the + and – signs.(b) Assume they
have a perfectly elastic collision. Determine the speeds and
directions of each of the balls.
