-vehicle 1: 2,060lbs

-vehicle 2: 5,800lbs

-both roads are 45mph

-The cars were impacted at right angles

-roadway was dry, 69 degrees

-friction between tire & road: .60=mu

-skid marks (PRIOR to impact): v1=20ft, v2=7ft.

*you can find the entire problem w/ more info online if you google: "john henry vehicle 5,800" it'll be the first one.

we need to figure out what was the

-velocity of both cars before impact.

-how fast does a car need to go to leave a 7ft. skid mark from a dead stop? (this ties into trying to solve who was speeding, or if both were, and if one ran the stop sign.)

*please show all work and formulas used. thankyou!
