Momentum vs. Energy

Here is the problem from class today (as a numerical calculation).

The two cars start with the same momentum and have the same force acting on them.  If you want to challenge yourself, see if you can adjust the starting velocity of car 1 so that it stops in the same distance as car 2 (with the same force).
