A 500 kg truck moving at 30 m/s strikes a parked 300 kg car. They connect together and move forward.
(A) What kind of collision is this (elastic or inelastic)?
(B) What is the momentum of the truck before it strikes the car?
(C) What is the speed of the car and truck as they move forward (connected together)after the collision?
