A player uses a hockey stick to increase the speed of a 0.200kg hockey puck by 6 m.s in 2 seconds.

A) How much did the hockey puck accelerate?

B) How much force was exerted on the puck?

C) How much force did the puck exert on the stick?

  • Physical Science -

    A) a = (V2-V1)/time = (6.0 m/s)/2 s
    = 3.0 m/s^2
    B) F = M*a (on puck, forward)
    Call this the 'action' force
    C) reaction = -action
    is the force on the stick
    (Newton's third law)

    Do the numbers.
