A plastic ball and a clay ball of equal masses, travelling in the same direction with equal speeds, strike against a vertical wall. From which ball does the wall received a greater amount of momentum?

The wall will receive an equal or the same amount of momentum from both the balls because momentum depends on an object's mass and its velocity, and here both the balls have equal mass and equal velocity.

Mathematically it can be given as:-

$p=m\times v$
