A 0.70 kg ball is moving horizontally with a speed of 8.8 m/s when it strikes a vertical wall. The ball rebounds with a speed of 3.7 m/s. What is the magnitude of the change in linear momentum of the ball?
-I am not sure how to honestly to figure this one out.
final momentum - initial momentum
m(Vf)-m(-Vi)= (notice the negative sign in the second velocityk, it is going opposite to final velocity.
