Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0momentum= mass*velocity both remain same after collision so no change in momentum.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But how? Are we to add both the momenta?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. yeah, got it. First, Its MV. Second is MV. Subtracting, we get 2MV.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By subtracting how we get 2MV

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But I don't understand why the sign is +ive in first case and ive in second case.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See, MV  (  MV) = MV + MV = 2MV(Simple integer addition)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4dw:1329838538143:dwbecause we shud maintain a standard sign system like think this way

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, in all physics problems requiring direction, we need to follow Cartesian System, rite?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4yeah there is more than that for that u need to come to 11th for now understand that when it is a 1dimensuional(straight line motion) follow the coordinate axes
