A car weighing one ton is moving at 50km/hr and a truck weighing two tons is moving at 25km/hr. Both are moving in the opposite direction, which has more momentum? I think they are the same, but want to make sure

  • Physics -

    The momenta are the same but in opposite directions. The vector sum of the two is zero
