Write a multiple-choice question that requires the reader to apply conservation of momentum to a system of two objects.

  • physics -

    A bumps B
    give masses
    give velocity vector of A (x, y components)
    give velocity vector of B (x, y components)

    Say they stick together (easy)
    or
    Say collision is elastic (harder)
    ask for x component of resulting velocity vector of A
