Question: two snowmobiles frosty and snowflake of equal masses suffer a...

Question details

Two snowmobiles, Frosty and Snowflake, of equal masses suffer a rear-end collision. Just before the collision, Frosty’s velocity is 25 m s–1 east and Snowflake’s velocity is 10 m s–1 in the same direction. Just after the collision, Frosty is moving 13 ms–1 towards the east.

a) What is Snowflake’s velocity immediately after the collision? 

b) Was this an elastic collision? Justify your answer by calculation.
