Block Directed Impulse

APPH12-HHJN55

A block of a given mass is moving at a constant velocity to the right and receives an impulse of $p$ to the right.

If a similar object moving at the same constant velocity, but with half the mass, receives the same impulse, what conclusions can be drawn?

A

After $t$ seconds, the two objects would have the same speed.

B

After $t$ seconds, the larger object would be traveling faster.

C

After $t$ seconds, the smaller object would be faster.

D

Not enough information was given to draw conclusions.
