Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Michael on Sunday, April 12, 2009 at 11:36pm.

A rubber ball is thrown against the wall. The ball has a mass of 4 g and strikes the wall perpendicularly with a speed of 12 m/s. The acceleration is constant while the ball is touching the wall. After touching the wall, the center of mass moves .5 cm toward the wall, and back out from the wall.

what is the magnitude of the time average force?

>>First I found the impulse delivered by the wall which is Px'-Px (momentum) = .096 N/s. Then I tried to find the change in time by taking (.5*2*(1/1000))/12. For this change in time i got 8.33E-4. However, the answer .096/8.33E-4 was incorrect. Help!
