A car with a mass of 1700 kg is traveling directly northeast (45 degrees between north and east) at a speed of 14m/s (31mph), and collides with a smaller car with a mass of 1300kg that is traveling directly south at a speed of 18m/s (40mph). The two cars stick together during the collision. With what speed and direction does the tangled mess of metal move right after the collision?
