- Can someone please help me solve this mechanics physics problem? Thank you

- Relevant Equations
- 2. A 500 kg automobile travelling at 30 m/s strikes a 100kg stationary pedestrian. The impact duration is 0.1 s and it slows the automobile by 1m/s.

Calculate:

a. the velocity imparted to the pedestrian

b. the force exerted by the vehicle on the pedestrian.

So, I understand that there are 2 objects, so is the equation we are supposed to use is the elastic collision equation, right? I just need help getting started, thank you.
