Yes, an elephant could have the same momentum as a golf ball if it were traveling at a much slower speed compared to the golf ball. Momentum depends on both mass and velocity, so while an elephant has much greater mass than a golf ball, it would need to be moving at a significantly slower speed to have the same momentum.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- A ball with a mass of # 6 kg# is rolling at #25 m/s# and elastically collides with a resting ball with a mass of # 1 kg#. What are the post-collision velocities of the balls?
- An astronaut with a mass of #75 kg# is floating in space. If the astronaut throws a #8 kg# object at a speed of #3/4 m/s#, how much will his speed change by?
- Is the Newton the unit for impulse?
- A ball with a mass of #8 kg# moving at #7 m/s# hits a still ball with a mass of #13 kg#. If the first ball stops moving, how fast is the second ball moving?
- A ball with a mass of #3 kg# moving at #2 m/s# hits a still ball with a mass of #8 kg#. If the first ball stops moving, how fast is the second ball moving?
