PhysicsQ&A LibraryOn the planet Gizmo, the inhabitants travel by high speed trains that run on air tracks. A train car with a mass of 8700 kg is traveling at 11.0 m/s when it strikes a second car moving in the same direction at 2.2 m/s. The two stick together and move off with a speed of 4.00 m/s. What is the mass of the second car? Explain your reasoning. How much kinetic energy was lost in the collision?Question
