A compact car and a large truck collide head on and stick together. Which undergoes the larger momentum change? 1) Truck, 2) Car, 3) The momentum change is the same for both vehicles, or 4) Cannot tell without knowing the final velocity of the combined mass.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

:uhh: i thought it was car, since the large mass of the truck increases the combined mass more so for the car, thus p=mv would be increased more also... bleh, i'm kinda new at momentum
