    Question:

    Two identical objects each of mass 1kg collide. After the collision teh loss of momentum for one of the objects is 120kgms^-1.

    Answer:

    They rearrange deltap = mv. But the thing is they use mass as 2kg, two of the objects why not 1kg? Surely its the momentum of one object?
