Problem 41PE

Professional Application Two football players collide head-on in midair while trying to catch a thrown football. The first player is 95.0 kg and has an initial velocity of 6.00 m/s, while the second player is 115 kg and has an initial velocity of –3.50 m/s. What is their velocity just after impact if they cling together?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution In this problem we have to calculate the impact velocity of two football player when they try to catch a thrown football in midair. Step 1 of 2 For a collision, the momentum is conserved. So, Here is the mass of first player, is the mass of second player, is the velocity of first player, is the velocity of second player and is the velocity after collision.

Step 2 of 2
