A car with mass ${m}_{c}=1074\text{}kg$ is traveling west through an intersection at a magnitude of velocity of vc = 15 m/s when a truck of mass ${m}_{t}=1593\text{}kg$ traveling south at $v}_{t}=10.8\text{}\frac{m}{s$ fails to yield and collides with the car. The vehicles become stuck together and slide on the asphalt, which has a coefficient of friction of ${\mu}_{k}=0.5$ .

Given information:

The mass of the car

The velocity of the car

The mass of the truck

The velocity of the truck

According to law of conservation of momentum the momentum in all the direction is conserved, considering the along the "i" direction we can write:

Now, consider the momentum conservation along the "j" direction:

Therefore, the velocity of the vehicles after the collsion is:

By substituting the correspondingvalues, we get the velocity of the vehciles after the collision as:

After the collision the cinetic energy of the both vehicles combined will be utilized to do work against the dricion force (given

Now, according to work energy theorem the we can write:

Where "d" is the distance travelled by the wreckage after the collision. Substituting the corresponding values, we get:

Hence, the distance travelled by the wreckage after the collsion is 7.958 m.

A pair of forces with equal magnitudes, opposite directions,and different lines of action is called a "couple". When acouple acts on a rigid object, the couple produces a torque thatdoes not depend on the location of the axis. The drawing shows acouple acting on a tire wrench, each force being perpendicular tothe wrench. Determine an expression for the torque produced by thecouple when the axis is perpendicular to the tired and passesthrough (a) point A, (b) point B, and (c) point C. Express youranswers in terms of the magnitude F of the force and the length Lof the wrench
