  1. It is the product of those two numbers: the momentum change.

  2. initial momentum= mass x velocity
    = 3.3 x 14
    = 46.2 Ns (to the wall)
    final velocity= 0 therfore final momentum = 0

    change in momentum = final momentum- initial momentum
    = 0 - 46.2 (to the wall)
    = 46.2 (away from the wall)
    Impulse= change in momentum
    = 46.2 Ns (away from the wall)
