12) A push of magnitude P acts on a box of weight W as shown in the figure. The push is
directed at an angle θ below the horizontal, and the box remains a rest. The box rests on a

B) the clay
C) Both of them experience the same non-zero momentum change.
D) Both of them experience zero momentum change.

statements concerning the magnitude of the momentum change during the collision is correct?
(There could be more than one correct choice.)
A) The magnitude of the momentum change experienced by each one is directly proportional to
its mass.
B) The truck experiences the greater magnitude momentum change.
C) The small car and the truck experience the same magnitude momentum change.
D) The magnitude of the momentum change experienced by each one is inversely proportional to
its mass.
E) The small car experiences the greater magnitude momentum change.

8) Three cars, car X, car Y, and car Z, begin accelerating from rest at the same time. Car X is
more massive than car Y, which is more massive than car Z. The net accelerating force exerted
on each car is identical. After 10 seconds, which car has the most amount of momentum?

10) A very light ping-pong ball moving east at a speed of 4 m/s collides with a very heavy
stationary bowling ball. The Ping-Pong ball bounces back to the west, and the bowling ball
moves very slowly to the east. Which object experiences the greater magnitude impulse during
the collision?
A) the bowling ball
B) the Ping-Pong ball
C) Neither; both experienced the same magnitude impulse.
D) It is impossible to tell since the actual mass values are not given.
E) It is impossible to tell since the velocities after the collision are unknown.
