##### Reference no: EM13535260

A 1500 kg blue car was travelling at 90 km/h. A 1200 kg red car was traveling behind the blue car at 108 km/h.when the two cars were 55 m apart, the blue car began braking.it took the driver of the red car 0.50 s to start braking her car. If the magnitude of the braking forces are 9375N and 9000N on the blue and red cars respectively, does the red car crash into the blue car ?
