It bounces off with the same speed and angle, as shown in the figure. x y 9 . 7 8 m / s 1 kg 9 . 7 8 m / s 1 kg 59 59 If the ball is in contact with the wall for . 315 s, what is the magnitude of the average force exerted on the ball by the wall? Correct answer: 31 . 9814 N. Explanation: Let : M = 1 kg , v = 9 . 78 m / s , and = 59 . The y component of the momentum is un- changed. The x component of the momentum is changed by P x =- 2 M v cos . Therefore, using impulse formula, F = P t =- 2 M v cos t =- 2(1 kg) (9 . 78 m / s) cos 59 . 315 s k ~ F k = 31 . 9814 N . Note: The direction of the force is in negative x direction, as indicated by the minus sign. keywords: 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A 0.023 kg golf ball moving at 16.2 m/s crashes through the window of a house in 5 . 2 10- 4 s. After the crash, the ball contin- ues in the same direction with a speed of 12.0 m/s....
