Classical Mechanics
# Kinetic Energy

An \(\SI{8e3}{\kilo\gram}\) truck traveling at \(20\text{ m/s}\) hits a parked car of mass \(\SI{2e3}{\kilo\gram}\) from behind. If the collision is perfectly inelastic, what is the approximate total loss in kinetic energy?

Assume that the road is frictionless and ignore the deformation of the vehicles.
