    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A motorcycle with a mass of m1 = 200 kg and a speed of v1 = 120 km/h collides with a car of mass m2 = 600 kg, travelling in a perpendicular direction to the motorcycle. After the collision, both vehicles travel in a direction that forms an angle of 60°.

    Find the initial velocity of the car.
