Answer :

Yes, we can expect a change in the result of the experiment. If we look at the motion from the frame of reference of the car, the two bodies experience a pseudo force in a direction opposite to the direction of motion of the car.


Now since there is a net non-zero force on the two bodies, the momentum of the two body system is not conserved in this case.


So, the equation “final momentum = initial momentum’ does not remain valid.


Also, since the momentum of the two body system is not conserved the equation “Velocity of separation = Velocity of approach” also does not remain valid.
