# (a) A car traveling due east strikes a car traveling due north at an intersection, and the two move together as a unit. A property owner on the southeast corner of the intersection claims that his fence was torn down in the collision. Should he be awarded damages by the insurance company? Defend your answer, (b) Let the eastward-moving car have a mass of 1.30 ×103-kg and a speed of 30.0 km/h and the northward-moving car a mass of 1.10 × 103-kg and a speed of 20.0 km/h. Find the velocity after the collision. Are the results consistent with your answer to part (a)?

(a)

To determine
Whether the claim of the property owner for award of damage by insurance company be accepted.

Explanation

Given info: One of the car in the collision was moving in eastward direction and the other was travelling in the northward direction before colliding with each other. The property of the owner is in the southeast corner.

Linear momentum is conserved in all direction...

(b)

To determine
The velocity of the system after collision.
