Can someone help me solve this kinetic energy problem?
A 2050 kg truck is traveling east through an intersection at 2.3 m/s when it is hit simultaneously from the side and the rear. (Some people have all the luck!) One car is a 1200 kg compact traveling north at 4.5 m/s. The other is a 1600 kg midsize traveling east at 10 m/s. The three vehicles become entangled and slide as one body. What are their speed and direction just after the collision?
