Unformatted text preview: below according to the Law of Conservation of Linear Momentum and explain your answer. xcomponent of momentum of normal puck xcomponent of momentum of composite puck Before collision 4 kg m/s Before collision 3 kg m/s After collision 2 kg m/s After collision 3 kg m/s The total momentum of two pucks before the collision should be equal the total momentum after the collision along each component. Hence taking xcomponents, 4 kg m/s + (3) kg m/s = 2 kg m/s + p p= 3 kg m/s...
