1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two cars are approaching a perpendicular intersection without a stop sign. Car 1 has a mass m1=900kg and is heading north at v1=25m/s. Car 2 has mass m2=700kg and is heading west at an unknown speed v2. The two cars collide at the intersection, and stick together as a result of the collision. The police report stated that after the collision, the two cars moved together in a direction 40∘ west of north and stopped after sliding d=35m from the collision point. What is the magnitude of the impulse exerted on car 1 during the collision? What is the magnitude of the impulse exerted on car 2 during the collision? 2. Relevant equations x(t) = x_o+v_o*t+1/2*a*t^2 mv = m1v_1'+m2v_2' J = mv_f - mv_o 3. The attempt at a solution Velocity of car 2: 26.9711 m/s Velocity after collision: 18.35729 m/s Momentum of car 1 before collision: 22500 kg m/s Momentum after collision: 1600 kg * 18.35729 = 29371.664 kg m/s sqrt((29371.664)^2 - (22500)^2) = 18879.7 (which is equal to the momentum of car 2) If I can figure out the first one I can do the second one I just need to know what I'm doing wrong.
