Expert Answer

Step 1

The change in momentum is having equal magnitude and oppositely directed.

fullscreen
Step 2

The forces are obeying Newton’s third law. So, the forces are equal and opposite.

The collision is inelastic collision. Thus, there will be loss in kinetic energy.

Step 3

Thus, only (a) and (b) a...
