T-bone Collision#

content/public/007.Momentum and Impulse/2D Collisions/T-bone Collision/T-boneCollision.png

Two cars experience a “T-bone” collision at an intersection. Car A has a mass of \({{params.ma}}kg\), and Car B has a mass of \({{params.mb}}kg\). The cars become entangled and move with a common velocity in the direction shown. If Car A was travelling at \({{params.vak}}km/h\) when impacted, calculate the corresponding velocity of Car B at impact. \(\theta= {{params.thetad}}^\circ\)
