(a) For a head-on collision, the relative speed of the two objects must be 2 v = 5.4 × 10 4 km/h. (b) A perpendicular collision is possible if one satellite is, say, orbiting above the equator and the other is following a longitudinal line. In this case, the relative speed is given by the Pythagorean theorem: 22 ν + = 3.8 × 10 4 km/h. 44. From Eq. 13-37, we obtain
