Question

A truck with a mass of $2,000$ kg and moving at $15 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$ collides with a stationary passenger car of mass $1,000 \mathrm{~kg}$. The two cars stick together after impact. Assuming that they are free to move afterward, what will the momentum of the truck+car object be?

A. $2,000 \mathrm{~kg} \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$

B. $3,000 \mathrm{~kg} \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$

C. $15,000 \mathrm{~kg} \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$

D. $30,000 \mathrm{~kg} \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$

Step 1

1 of 4**Given:**

$m_1=2,000$ kg $v_1=15\,\frac{\text{m}}{\text{s}}$ $m_2=1,000$ kg $v_2=0\,\frac{\text{m}}{\text{s}}$

In this task we will calculate the momentum of the car and the truck after the collision.
