So, we were given a scenario and were asked to not calculate the momentum components in the x- directions. We were asked to use the simple formula of momentum(p) p=mv. Velocity was the root of the distance between the collisions and the mass was 1 unit. No specific units are to be used in these calculations. The question asks us to calculate momentum in the y-direction after being given specific angles. What's the difference between the distance and the y- component again?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
