Question

Two rams run toward each other. One ram has a mass of 44 kg and runs south with a speed of 6 m/s, while the other has a mass of 50 kg and runs north with a speed of 3 m/s. What will the momentum of the system made up of the two rams be after they collide? Assume the total momentum of the system is conserved. A. 114 kg-m/s south B. 414 kg-m/s south C. 414 kg m/s north D. 114 kg-m/s north ​

Answer

In the northward direction, the answer is 114 kg-m/s, as stated by the teacher.
