Speed of the car, which hits other car at right angle? (car accident investigation)

  1. May 28, 2015 #1
    A car (C1) coming in the opposite direction hits the other car (C2) at right angle. The car which gets hit, C2 rotates in 180 degrees. What was the speed of the car C1?
    Assumptions: Both cars have same tyres. W of C1 =3200lb (2012 Honda Accord)
    w of C2=3400lb (Hyundai Tuscon)
    Please let me know if you need any info.

    That is impossible to answer without much more information. As this looks like a real case: ask an expert. They exist for a good reason, and their judgment can be used - unlike statements found in internet forums.

    Find one in the yellow pages?

    Edit: too slow.

    I found many. But most companies work with insurance com and not with individuals.
