A ball of mass $m$ moving with a velocity of magnitude $v_0$ at an angle $\theta$ to the $x$-axis strikes a wall and bounces with the same momentum and angle $\theta$, as shown in the figure above.

What is the magnitude of the change in momentum of the ball?

A

$\text{Zero}$.

B

$2mv_0 \hat i$

C

$2mv_0 \sin\theta \hat i$

D

$2mv_0 \cos\theta\hat i$

E

$2mv_0 \cos\theta\hat j$
