A 2.8 kg duck is swimming at 0.35 m/s and a 3.4 kg goose is swimming at 0.75 m/s. Which bird would make the biggest impact on you if it carelessly swam into you? Explain. I'm not sure where to start. Could I have some help please?

  1. Maybe assume they both take the same time to stop when they crash into you
    Force * time = change in momentum

    for duck
    Force * time = 2.8 * .35

    for goose
    Force * time = 3.4 * .75
