Unformatted text preview: b. Create the momentum conservation equation. c. Find the final velocity of the car. (21.33 m/s) 3. A 620 kg moose stands in the middle of the railroad tracks in Sweden, frozen by the lights of an oncoming 10,000 kg locomotive traveling at 10 m/s. The engineer tries to slow the train down in time to avoid hitting the moose, but fails. The moose survives the hit, and is carried down the remaining track sitting on the locomotives cowcatcher (the front part of train engine). What is the final velocity of the locomotive and moose after the collision? a. Generate a picture of the situation. b. Create the momentum conservation equation. c. Find the final velocity of the locomotive and moose. (9.41 m/s)...
