An ice hockey puck slides along the ice at 12 m/s. A hockey stick delivers an impulse of 4.0 kg*m/s causing the puck to move off in the opposite direction with the same speed. What is the mass of the puck?

I tried all sorts of ways to set this up and I just cant seem to get it, help?

  • Need this soon!! - ,

    I'm on my last try and I don't know how to do it!

  • physics - ,

    The momentum change = 2*M*12 m/s = 24 M m/s
    where m is the puck mass in kg
    That equals the impulse, 4.0 kg m/s
    M = 4.0/24 kg = 1/6 kg

    Why are you using two names and switching them in the same question?
