Two cars of identical mass are approaching the same intersection, one from the south and the one from the west. They reach the intersection at the same time and collide. The cars lock together and move away at an angle of 22deg counterclockwise from the road; heading east. Which car was traveling faster than the other before the collision? Explain your reasoning
