Origami Car

I made a couple more of these origami cars today after our Physics semester final out of purple post-it notes. Once the test was over and we could talk, I made the two cars move towards each other and asked the question "If both cars are of equal mass and one car is carrying a load of one nerd candy, which car decelerates faster? On which car is the momentum greatest?" Our lab table laughed histerically and then our teacher scolded us and stated that Table 1 is full of loud mouths.
