    question 1 help now sure what to do
    I = mv - mu
    Where m is the mass, I is the impulse and v and u are the final and initial speed respectively.

    For part b) you want to use Conservation of Momentum law.
    i.e. Initial momentum = final momentum

    Is that okay?

    (2*-5) it's moving in the opposite direction.

    It's moving in the opposite direction to the direction it received an impulse.
    Do you have a drawing for this question?

    you need to state a direction from where the impulse was received, then the directions will be relative to that.

    Yeah but A must also receive an impulse from B.. So it would be the same in the opposite direction.

    ok
    In an M1 exam on collisions like the one above, you will almost always be asked to find the impulse that one object exerts on the other object. Calculate the change in momentum on the subject object.

    so which one's the subject object??????
