Excellent answer. But can I ask why you have subtracted the momenta of the carts?

I understand now! Thanks so much! So are the spikes in the graphs supposed to represent the discontinuity of which you speak?

comment Analysis of the impulse of 2 colliding carts under the effect of magnetic repulsion
yes. please note that this is the graph of change in momentum. this is not the graph of velocities, in which case, yes the signs of the velocities would change.

comment Analysis of the impulse of 2 colliding carts under the effect of magnetic repulsion
Please read the question very carefully before accusing me of being unclear. I mentioned twice what the y-axis represents: "the data for the difference in momentum was graphed through the equation m2v2 - m1v1" and "Why are there spikes in the graph of Δp (change in momentum)" implying it's clearly a Δp-t graph. Also please look at the title which clearly states IMPULSE. you missed it three times.
