Two identical cars have the same speef one traveling east and one traveling west.Do the cars have the same momentum ?

• phsc -

No, because their velocity is NOT identical. The velocities are identical
only when direction AND magnitude are
identical.

• phsc -

noooooooooooooo because they aren't going the same direction and its velocity isn't the same
