1207312222mvmmFFFC+=FHGIKJbgbg..Simplifying, we obtain mmmFFC+=bg.,which we use in solving for the mass of the caboose:mCFF===×=×0270 370 37 318 10118 1044.....chkgkg 97. Let mFbe the mass of the freight car and vFbe its initial velocity. Let mCbe the mass of the caboose and vbe the common final velocity of the two when they are coupled. Conservation of the total momentum of the two-car system leads to
