A single 1,300 kg cargo train car is rolling along a train track at 2.0 m/s when 400 kg of coal is dropped vertically into it. What is its velocity right afterward? Assume a closed system. 1.5 m/s 2.0 m/s 6.5 m/s 0.0011 m/s

Use Conservation of Momentum. The momentum of the train before the coal added is equal to the momentum after the coal is added. See what to do now?
not really :(
The definition of momentum is\[\vec p = m \vec v\]So if momentum before the coal is dropped must equal the momentum before this event occurs. \[\vec p_i = \vec p_f\]Hopefully you can see what to do now!
