Problem 6DQ

(a) When a large car collides with a small car, which one undergoes the greater change in momentum: the large one or the small one? Or is it the same for both? (b) In light of your answer to part (a), why are the occupants of the small car more likely to be hurt than those of the large car, assuming that both cars are equally sturdy?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 6DQ Problem (a) Step 1: When a large car collides with a small car both the cars have equal change in momentum and direction of the momentums are opposite to each other. Problem (b) Step 1: The small car has less mass and the acceleration of the small car is greater comparing with the larger car, hence the occupants of the small car more likely to be hurt than those of the large car
