comment Conservation of Momentum/Energy collision Problem
I think the problem as worded is a bit vague. Since you are told the balls travel in a direction perpendicular to the motion of the cart, momentum conservation rules out a and b. I need to look at this in the morning when I'm not tired.

comment What does $\Psi^*$ mean in Schrodinger's formulation of Quantum Mechanics?
Usually you get the wave function at time t=0 and the evolution of the wave function is governed by the Schrodinger equation.
