Solved Problem: You've just been involved in an accident in which the damage is significant but none is hurt. While driving east through an intersection you are broadsided by a large sport utility vehicle travelling north. What speed and direction do the two vehicles move off with just after the collision. Assume that the collision is perfectly inelastic. Question: Determine the velocity of the two just after the collision. Known: m, = 1000 kg, m₂ = 2000 kg, v = 10 m/s and v₁ = 20 m/s. Principle: Conservation of Momentum in 2D Approach: Determine initial and final momenta and solve for velocity psystem initial = Paystem final I: Printal = m1v₁, = (m₁ + m₂) v₁, cost=Pzfinal y: Pyinitial = M2V2, = (m₁ + m₂) v2, sine = Pyfinal Let v₁, v2, = V, Taking the ratio of the two: initial: before collision +y VI; final: after collision +y 0 +
