Unformatted text preview: and y components of v 1 , x and y components of v 2 ) We need additional information Inelastic Collision: Particles stick together, so that the two output bodies have the same output velocity. 2fy 1fy 2fx 1fx , v v v v = = Chapter 9 Problem A 1500 kg car travels east with speed 25 m/s and a 2500 kg truck travels north with speed 20 m/s. They collide at an intersection and the two vehicles stick together. Find the velocity of the wreckage after the collision. 4 Chapter 9 Problem A billiard ball moving at 5 m/s strikes a stationary ball of the same mass. After the collision, the first ball moves at 4.33 m/s at an angle of 30 degrees with respect to the original line of motion. Assuming an elastic collision, find the struck balls velocity after the collision....
