Two space shuttles owned by two different countries go to space. Their engines are closed, and are moving from impulse towards Mars. The shuttles are separated by big springs. The first shuttle, has a mass of 1,5 x 10^4 kg and a velocity of 3,5x10^3km/h at 5,1degrees in relation to its original direction. The second shuttle, has a mass of 1,7x10^4 kg, and a velocity of 3,4 x 10^3 km/h at 5,9egrees in relation to its original direction. Determine the initial speed of both shuttles at the moment when they we're linked one another.
I'm honestly completely lost at this part. I haven't been able to find anything and I'm doing courses at home and the lesson doesn't explain this part well.
