if a 12kg ball rolls down a ramp at 3 m/s and crashes into a pillow and it takes 0.65 s to stop the ball what is the momentum of the ball and the force exerted by the pillow? I would like to know the formula on how to figure this out.

  • college physics - ,

    Momentum before impact = M*V = 12*3
    = 36 kg m/s.

    Force exerted = Impulse / decel. time)
    = (Momentum change)/(deceleration time)
    = 36/0.63 = ___ Newtons
