(a) What is the speed vf of the three coupled cars after the collision in terms of v1 and v2?
(b) How much kinetic energy is lost in the collision? Answer in terms of M, v1, and v2.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
b)kinetic energy before coupeled=1/2*M*v1^2
kinetic energy after coupeled=1/2*M*vf^2
