Homework Help: Calculus (Momentum and Force)

Posted by Casablanca on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 at 2:15pm.

The change in the momentum of an object ( p) is given by the force, F, acting on the object multiplied by the time interval that the force was acting: p = F t .

If the force (in newtons) acting on a particular object is given by F(t)=cost , whats the total change in momentum of the object from time t = 5 until t = 7 seconds?

For my answer, I got 1.615910873, would this be correct?
