Describe what happens in terms of momentum changes for the two wagons during an inelastic collision. When it comes to inelastic collision, I get lost. Any help is appreciated!!

In an inelastic collision, both object sticks to each other and travel at the same velocity. so this is the formula. \[m _{1}v _{1}+m _{2}v _{2}=(m _{1}+m _{2})v _{3}\] Conservation of momentum would be that \[m _{1}v _{1}+m _{2}v _{2}=m _{1}v _{3}+m _{2}v _{3}\] Therefore there is no change in momentum in an inelastic collision Momentum actually is conserved in both elastic and inelastic collision

"Momentum actually is conserved in both elastic and inelastic collision" momentum is **always** conserved that is absolutely fundamental.....

Kinetic energy cannot always be conserved. And momentum is not a lot different than KE
