A student is tackling a physics problem about two cars that collide. Before the collision, each car has a positive kinetic energy.
After the crash, the kinetic energy of each car was zero. Which statement is true about these cars?
The kinetic energy was likely converted into potential energy.
The kinetic energy was not conserved; it was transformed into other types of energy.
The two cars conserved momentum after the collision.
The mass of one car was probably twice the mass of the other car.
