Unit 4: Momentum and Collisions

Problem Set A

 

Problem 11:

A 1.81-kg rubber ball moving with a speed of 5.36 m/s strikes a wall and rebounds with a speed of 1.8 m/s in the opposite direction. Determine the impulse (in Newton-second) encountered by the ball.

 

 

 

 

 

Momentum and collision principles can be reviewed on the Set A Overview page.

Further information about the impulse-momentum change equation and its applications to rebounding situations is available online at The Physics Classroom.
