A 1.0 kg cart travelling at 1.0m/s right hits a 4.0kg cart at rest. After the collision, the lighter cart is observed to move to the left at 0.5m/s. What impulse did the interaction deliver to the massive cart (magnitude and direction)? What is the carts velocity after the collision?
I calculated an impulse of 1.5 kg m/s right, though I'm not sure if this is correct. I'm not sure of the procedure for this question.
