Question:
A particle is initially traveling to the right when it hits a wall and turns around to the left. The momentum after the collision is less than the initial momentum.

a-the impulse on the particle is to the right
b-the impulse on the particle is to the left
c-there is no impulse on the particle
d-none of the above

Question: When a particle hits the ground and comes to rest, the direction of the total impulse is

a-up
b-down
c-the total impulse is zero, as the particle stops
d-none of the above
