A 120 kg football player tries to dive into the endzone at 7.5 m/s to score a touchdown. A 150 kg player dives out of the endzone into the other player at 5 m/s to try and stop him. They collide at the goalline and the tackler holds on to the player diving into the endzone. does the player score a touchdown or not
yes
no
they both stop exactly on the goaline
need more information

Im thinking its yes because the smaller player has more momentum so he would make it but I could see that maybe the answer could be need more information since they don't tell the distance but Im not sure.

  • Physics - ,

    M1*V1=M2*V2

    Whichever has the most momentum will win. Just multiply MassxVelocity and compare.
