A 0.1-kg object is traveling to the right (in the positive direction) with a speed of 2 m/s. After a 0.2 s collision, the object is traveling to the left at 3 m/s. What is the magnitude of the impulse (in N-s) acting on the object? The answer must be positive.

  • Physics -

    Mass x (velocity change) = 0.1 x 5 kg m/s
    = 0.5 N s

    (1 kg m/s is the same as 1 N*s)

    The duration of the collision doesn't matter in oomputing the impulse, but it does determine the force involved.
