Escort-Camaro Collision

  1. Mar 25, 2010 #1
    An Escort and a Camaro traveling at right angles collide and stick together. The Escort has a mass of 1300 kg and a speed of 35 km/h in the positive x direction before the collision. The Camaro has a mass of 1500 kg and was traveling in the positive y direction. After the collision, the two move off at an angle of 53 o to the x axis. What was the speed of the Camaro?(in km/h)

    use conservation of momentum in the x and the y direction.
