Question

In a physics lab, 0.5 kg cart (Cart A) moving rightward with a speed of 1.5 m/s collides with a 1.50 kg cart (Cart B) moving leftward with a speed of 2.0 m/s. The two carts "stick" together and move as a single object after the collision. Determine the post-collision momentum and direction of the two carts
