A car (mass=1100kg) is traveling at 32m/s when it collides head on with a sport utility vehicle (mass=2500kg) traveling in the opposite direction. In the collision, the two vehicles come to a halt. at what speed was the sport utility vehicle traveling.

  1. m1*V1 = m2*V2.
    1100*32 = 2500*V2.
    V2 = (1100*32) / 2500 = 14.08 m/s.
