Rubber ball collision

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
    p=mv



    3. The attempt at a solution
    My thoughts-
    Answer is C as KE is not conserved since velocity of ball has decreased.
    Option A also seems correct.

    What is the momentum transferred to the wall if the momentum of the ball is pB before impact and pA after the impact (in the opposite direction). What is the momentum transferred if pA =pB? Which is greater?
