What happens to the momentum of the truck if sand leaks at a constant rate through a hole in the truck bed while the truck maintains a constant velocity?

• Physics -

They have already told you that the velocity of the truck (less sand) remains the same. The momentum of the truck (less sand) therefore also stays the same.
