Two cars collide with each other. Before the collision, one car (m = 1100 kg) is going north at 18 m/s and the other car (m = 1300 kg) is going south at 16 m/s. What is the momentum of the system made up of the two cars after the collision?

it will be the same as before the collision calculate that

the total momentum is given by the subsequent vector sum: \[\Large {m_1}{{\mathbf{v}}_{\mathbf{1}}} + {m_2}{{\mathbf{v}}_{\mathbf{2}}}\]

using the subsequent reference frame, we get the subsequent scalar equation: |dw:1435345694976:dw| \[\Large - {m_1}{v_1} + {m_2}{v_2} = - 1100 \times 18 + 1300 \times 16 = ...\]
