Unit 4: Momentum and Collisions

Problem Set A

 

Problem 4:

Rocky the astronaut from the problem above decides to run around on earth (6 times the acceleration due to gravity as compared to the moon) in his space suit with a velocity of 3.2 m/s westward. What would be the magnitude of the momentum in kg-m/s?

 

 

 

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