Impulse on Pucks: Momentum Comparison

APPH12-4E@1IH

Consider the following diagram depicting two pucks where ${m}_1$ is one-half the mass of ${m}_2$. Both pucks start from rest and are given a push with force $F$ for time $t$.

At the end of time $t$, how does the velocity of puck ${m}_1$ compare to the velocity of puck ${m}_2$?

A

The velocity of puck ${m}_1$ is less than the velocity of puck ${m}_2$.

B

The velocity of puck ${m}_1$ is the same as the velocity of puck ${m}_2$.

C

The velocity of puck ${m}_1$ is greater than the velocity of puck ${m}_2$.

D

None of the above.
