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

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.
