when a gust of wind from the southwest exerts a constant force of 1.0 x 102 N on its sails

for 3.0 s. With what velocity will the sled be moving after the wind has subsided?

F=100 N,

Δt=3 s.

Impulse = F•Δt=100•3=300 kg•m/s.

p is directed to the East

F•Δt=p1 is directed to the northeast.

p and p1 make the angle α=45º

Another angle in the parallelogram of momenta is [360-(2•45)]/2=135º

Use cosine law

p(net) =sqrt(p²+p1²-2p•p1•cos α) =

=sqrt(480²+ 300² -2•480•300•cos 135º)=

=sqrt(480²+ 300² +2•480•300•0.707)= 723.9 kg•m/s.

v=p(net)/m =723.9/40=18.1 m/s
