A railroad car of mass 2.41 104 kg is moving with a speed of
4.10 m/s. It collides and couples with three other coupled railroad
cars, each of the same mass as the single car and moving in the
same direction with an initial speed of 2.05 m/s. (a) What is the
speed of the four cars after the collision? (Round your answer to
at least two decimal places.) (b) How much mechanical energy is
lost in the collision?

A railroad car moving at a speed of 3.50 m/s overtakes, collides
and couples with two coupled railroad cars moving in the same
direction at 1.40 m/s. All cars have a mass of mass 3.3x10^4
kg.
(a) Determine the speed of the three coupled cars after the
collision. (Give your answer to at least 2 decimal places.) m/s
(b) Determine the kinetic energy lost in the collision. J

1. A railroad car of mass 2.40E+4 kg moving with a speed of 3.10
m/s collides and couples with two other coupled railroad cars each
of the same mass that are already moving in the same direction at a
speed of 1.00 m/s.
a. What is the speed (in m/s) of the three coupled cars after
the collision?
b.How much kinetic energy (in J) is lost in the collision?

A 1.38 × 104 kg railroad car moving at 7.64 m/s to the north
collides with and sticks to another railroad car of the same mass
that is moving in the same direction at 1.94 m/s. What is the
velocity of the joined cars after the collision?

A railroad car of mass 3.45 x 104 kg is traveling
east at 5.50 m/s and collides with a railroad car of mass 4.21 x
104 kg traveling west 1.50 m/s. Find the velocity (in
m/s) of the railroad cars that become coupled after the collision.
Assume east is the positive direction
