A hammer with 10 J of kinetic energy hits a nail and pushes it 5.0 mm into a plank.
Both the hammer and nail come to rest after the collision.
What is the average force that acts on the nail while it moves the 5.0 mm?

    KE=mv²/2
    v²= 2•KE/m
    a= v²/2s
    F=ma=mv²/2s= 2m•KE/2s m=
    = KE/s=10/0.005 =2000 N
