Unit 4: Momentum and Collisions

Problem Set A

 

Problem 2:

A 1909 kg police pursued van is driven by Chase Mee. The van exhibits a momentum of 3409 kg-m/s. What is the velocity of the van in m/s as it veers rightward into a guardrail?

 

TIP:

Problem 2 involves the routine use of the momentum equation. There is a single algebra step involved; otherwise it is a mere plug-and-chug type question.

If you are having difficulty with this problem, then it is recommended that you spend some time reviewing the definition of momentum and collisions in your textbook or online at The Physics Classroom before proceeding with the remaining questions.
