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

1. Damon

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
