Question

A 300 Kg red bumper car is traveling with a velocity of +2.5 m/s. Over a 0.5 second time frame it has collided, head-on, into a 500 Kg black bumper car that is initially at rest. After the elastic collision, the red bumper car transfers all its momentum to the black bumper car. What is the change in momentum of the black bumper car?
