A 2.4kg cart is moving with a constant speed of 2m/s along a smooth horizontal plane when a 1.5kg object is dropped vertically onto it. What is the change in momentum of the trolley?

2. Relevant equations

p=mv

[tex]\Delta[/tex]p=p final - p initial

3. The attempt at a solution

[tex]\Delta[/tex]p=p final - p initial

=7.8 - 4.8

=3
