A railroad car of mass 2.49 104 kg, is moving with a speed of 3.89 m/s. It collides and couples with three other coupled railroad cars, each of the same mass as the single car and moving in the same direction with an initial speed of 1.95 m/s.
(a) What is the speed of the four cars after the collision?
(b) How much mechanical energy is lost in the collision?
Sorry, but I have no idea about this problem :(
