Resultant Force

Resultant Force problem 42

Let us observe the collision of a heavily loaded wagon with an empty wagon stationary on a railway line. When they collide, the loaded wagon acts on the empty wagon with a force of 2 kN.

  • With what force does the empty wagon act on a loaded one?

  • After the collision, the wagons bounce. How do we expect them to move after the collision?
