A 75.0 kg fullback running east with a speed of 6.00 m/s is tackled by a 82.0 kg opponent running north with a speed of 5.00 m/s. (a) Calculate the velocity of the players immediately after the tackle. (b)Calculate the direction of the players immediately after the tackle.(c)Determine the mechanical energy that is lost as a result of the collision. (d)Where did the lost energy go?

    x: m•v1=(m1+m2) •v(x),
    y: m•v2 =(m1+m2) •v(y),
    v(x)= m•v1/(m1+m2),
    v(y) =m•v2 /(m1+m2),

    v=sqrt[v(x)²+v(y)²],
    φ =arctan {v(y)/v(x)}.

    ∆K = Kf −Ki =
    =(m1•v²/2 +m2•v²/2) - (m1 +m2) •v²/2.
    mechanical energy -> thermal energy, sound, etc

    Can you give me the values so I can compare, I don't think I am getting the right values!

    x: m1•v1=(m1+m2) •v(x)
    y: m2•v2 =(m1+m2) •v(y)
    v(x)= m1•v1/(m1+m2) =75•6/(75+82)=2.87 m/s
    v(y) =m2•v2 /(m1+m2)= 82•5/(75+82)=2.66 m/s

    v=sqrt[v(x)²+v(y)²] =3.91 m/s
    φ =arctan {v(y)/v(x)} =42.8⁰

    ∆K = Kf −Ki =(m1•v²/2 +m2•v²/2) - (m1 +m2) •v²/2 =
    =(75•36/2 +82•25/2) –(75+82) •3.91²/2=
    =1350 +1025 -1200 =1175 J
