**drwls**, Sunday, June 14, 2009 at 2:29pmForce x distance driven =

Potential energy of the lifted weight

= (413)(9.8)(1.4) J

The distance X that the pile gets driven each time is (1/2)*(pile impact velocity)*time

The impact velocity of the pike is

V = sqrt(2gH)

Compute V, X, and then solve for the force.

**drwls**, Sunday, June 14, 2009 at 3:42pmI just realized that this problem can be solved more directly using momentum considerations. The answer should be the same.

(Force)(stopping time)

= momentum at impact = M V

F = M V/(0.024 s)

V = sqrt(2gH), as before
