    When two objects in motion collide

    Hello, I have a question. If two objects in linear motion on the horizontal collide, after the collision will one object more below the horizontal or will both objects move above the horizontal? I think both will travel above the horizontal. It this a good interpretation of what is happening in question 3

    momentum is conserved in both the horizontal and vertical directions.
