Homework Help: physics

Posted by paul on Thursday, September 19, 2013 at 11:21pm.

Airplane flight recorders must be able to survive catastrophic crashes. Therefore, they are typically encased in crash-resistant steel or titanium boxes that are subjected to rigorous testing. One of the tests is an impact shock test, in which the box must survive being thrown at high speeds against a barrier. A 41 kg box is thrown at a speed of 220 m/s and is brought to a halt in a collision that lasts for a time of 6.5 ms. What is the magnitude of the average net force that acts on the box during the collision?
Round answer to nearest 100,000's place
i.e. 123456789 would therefore be 123500000
