A car is stopped for a traffic signal. When the light turns green, the car accelerates, increasing its speed from 0 to 5.85 m/s in 0.712 s. What is the magnitude of the linear impulse experienced by a 70.5 kg passenger in the car during this time?

  • physics -

    Impulse = change in momentum
    I= m(v-u)
    I=70.5 (5.85-0)
    I=412.4Ns
