(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 1500kg car has the same momentum as a 2500kg truck moving at 15 m/s.

How fast is the car moving?

A. 15 m/s

B. 25 m/s

C. 35 m/s

D. 40 m/s

E. 50 m/s

2. Relevant equations

p = mv

3. The attempt at a solution

Truck = (2500kg)(15m/s) = 37500

Car = v=p/m = 37500/1500kg = 25m/s

This is what I answered but it says it wrong.

Any help would be appreciated.
