ions gaining momentum?

I have the following problem. An ion beam (6,11)C is hitting a copper
target and I am writing out the momentum of the particles passing the
boundary. But the momentum of the outgoing (11,6)C particles seems to be
higher than the momentum of the incoming (11,6)C particles. Could this
be correct?

Thank you in advance,

ps. The above is correct just for the 1cm target. for longer targets
momentum is lower.
