Three objects are moving along a straight line as shown in the figure. Taking the positive direction to be to the right, what is the total momentum of this system?

Pos ---> 5.00 m/s, 8.00 kg

Neg <--- 4.00 m/s, 15.00 kg

Pos ---> 2.00 m/s, 3.00 kg

A) -14 kg m/s
B) +106 kg m/s
C) +14 kg m/s
D) -106 kg m/s
E) 0 kg m/s

2. total momentum = m1(v1)+m2(v2)+m3(v3)
total momentum = [(5)8]+[(-4)15]+[(2)3]
total momentum = (40)+(-60)+(6)
total momentum = (-20)+(6) = -14
