Question

Two car approach an intersection at a right angle to each other. If an inelastic collision occurs at the intersection, determine the x component of the final momentum of the

combined vehicles. Car 1 of mass 943.98 kg approaches the intersection from the left with a speed of 22.73 m/s. Car 2 of mass 1,393.41 kg approaches the intersection from the south with a speed of 16.09 m/s.
