Posted by Emily on Tuesday, July 10, 2012 at 3:07pm.

Car 1 has a mass of m1 = 65 103 kg and moves at a velocity of v01 = +0.76 m/s. Car 2, with a mass of m2 = 92 103 kg and a velocity of v02 = +1.5 m/s, overtakes car 1 and couples to it. Neglect the effects of friction in your answer.

(a) Determine the velocity of their center of mass before the collision.

(b) Determine the velocity of their center of mass after the collision

(c) Should your answer in part (b) be less than, greater than, or equal to the common velocity vf of the two coupled cars after the collision? Justify
