A car traveling at 100Km/hr smashes into a concrete abutment. Show that the collision is the equivalent to driving off the top of a ten story building. Allow 4 meter per story and neglect air resistance. Next, find the equivalent vertical height to represent the effect of a two car head-on collision with each car traveling 100Km/hr.
