##### Reference no: EM13329151

1. A fullback with a mass of 105 kg and a velocity of 2.5 m/s due west collides head-on with a defensive back with a mass of 70 kgand a velocity of 4.0 m/s due east. (Take the positive direction to be to the west.)

(a) What is the initial momentum of each player?

momentum of full back

momentum of defensive back

(b) What is the total momentum of the system before the collision?

(c) If they stick together and external forces can be ignored, what direction will they be traveling immediately after they collide?

east

west
