Suppose that 1st car is X-car and the 2nd car is Y-car. Answer: After the collision, car X is no linger moving, but car Y is moving.

When a vehicle is in a car accident there can be a secondary collision. For example, if car ÒbÓ was rear ended that is the first collision but when that car hit the car in front of them that is the secondary collision.

Slip and fall, car/truck accident or collision not caused by enemy action, firearms accident, burns.

Truck is not a car

Total angular momentum is always conserved - there is no way you can violate that law. So, the answer is yes.

BackgroundMomentum of an of object is the product of its mass and velocity.A collision is when two or more objects hit each other.During a collision, the total momentum of a closed system is conserved;however, the kinetic energy may or may not be conserved during a collision.AnswerAn elastic collision is a collision in which the total kinetic energy of a system is conserved; that is, the sum of the kinetic energies of the colliding objects before and after the collision is the same.The collision of pool balls is considered an elastic collision because the amount of kinetic energy lost is trivial.In an inelastic collision on the other hand , kinetic energy is not conserved. Most collisions are inelastic because kinetic energy is transformed into other forms of energy (such as thermal energy, potential energy, sound, etc.) during the collision process.An example of an inelastic collision is a car crash.

I will assume that the collision is completely inelastic (that is, the truck and the car coalesce, moving off with the same velocity after the collision). This assumption is crucial as without it, the question cannot be solved if the inelastic collision is maintained.Let the mass of the car be m. The mass of the truck is 8m.From the principle of conservation of momentum;8m(60) = (8m + m)vwhere v is the final velocity.So, v = 8(60)/9v = 53.3 km/h

The TOTAL momentum (of toy truck + toy car) will be the same, before and after the collision.

A Lot!

A recovery truck(also know as 'tow truck')is basically a vehicle used to transport a disabled car, truck etc., from one location to another. They are used for clearing accident and collision debris...

The total momentum of the system doesn't change. In this case, it refers to the momentum of the toy truck plus the momentum of the toy car.

Since momentum must be conserved, they move off at a combined speed of 5 m/s. (If the masses are different, write an equation that states that momentum is conserved: momentum before the collision equal momentum after the collision).
