A disk of mass $m$ strikes a similarly sized disk at rest on a frictionless table.
All else remaining equal, which of the following conclusions can be drawn if the mass of the moving disk were doubled while the motionless disk remained the same?
The total kinetic energy and linear momentum of the system would be increased.
The total linear momentum of the system would increase but not the kinetic energy.
The total kinetic energy of the system would increase but not the linear momentum.
The total kinetic energy and linear momentum of the system would remain the same.
