How would i solve this?

A 10.0 kg ball falling at 10.0 m/!@#$%^&s a pile of feathers and comes to a complete stop in 10 s. What force does the pile of feathers exert to stop the ball?

10 N

20 N

100 N

200 N

  1. Force * time = impulse = change in momentum

    T (10) = 10 * 10
    T = 10 N

    which by the way is about the weight of the ball on earth. I think it would take longer.

  4. wait a minute, add the weight of the ball!.
    10 + 10*9.81 = 108 N
