Ok, this has been troubling me, but I have not, for obvious reasons tried it in reality. Say you have nice heavy powerful automobile, say a mid 60’s car, about 4000lbs with about 400hp. At highway speeds (65mph), if it were to strike another vehicle, but a much, much lighter one, (no more than 2000lbs) that travelling slower(35mph), or hell even stationary, what would happen? (Assuming that no movie type crap happened ie. instant explosion, lost control, flying through the air…)
I doubt it would stop completely, but just how much speed would it lose?
I can solve any problem!
Just give me a rifle and a clocktower!
