A 1430 kg car moving north at 27.0 m/s collides with a 2165 kg car moving east at 13.0 m/s. They stick together. In what direction and with what speed do they move after the collision?
____ ° north of east
The velocity component x of the resultant vector is equal to:
Vx = (m1V1x + m2V2x) / (m1+m2)
Vx = ((1430)(0) + (2165)(13)) / ...
