A car traveling at a speed of 18 m/s (approximately 40 MPH) crashes into a solid concrete wall. The driver has a mass of 90 kg.
a. What is the change in momentum of the driver as he comes to a stop:
b. What impulse is required in order to produce this change in momentum:
c. How does the application and magnitude of this force differ in two cases: the first, in which the driver is wearing a seat belt, and the second, in which he is not wearing a seat belt and is stopped instead by contact with the windshield and steering column? Will the time of action of the stopping force change? Explain
