Two cars approach an ice-covered intersection. One car, of mass 1.26 103 kg, is initially traveling north at 10.6 m/s. The other car, of mass 1.66 103 kg, is initially traveling east at 10.6 m/s. The cars reach the intersection at the same instant, collide, and move off coupled together. Find the velocity of the center of mass of the two-car system just after the collision.
