What is the average force on the ball ? t Δp = I = ∫ F (t ) dt I = Favg Δt f ti Δp = p f − pi = (60 × 10 −3 kg )(25 m/s) − 0 = 1.5 kg m/s 1.5 kg m/s Favg = = 75 N 0.02s Example A parachu;st falls 370 m from an airplane. His parachute does not open. Miraculously he survives the impact when he hits a snow bank. Assume that his speed at impact is 56 m/s (terminal speed) and that his mass is 85 kg. If the maximum survivable force is 1.2 x 105 N, what is the minimum snow depth that would stop him safely?
