Problem Solving Exercise on Momentum (Conceptual Physics) 1. Tiger Woods hits a 0.050-kg golf ball, giving it a speed of 75 m/s. What impulse does he impart to the ball? 2. Wayne hits a stationary 0.12-kg hockey puck with a force that lasts for 1.0 _ 10_2 s and makes the puck shoot across the ice with a speed of 20.0 m/s, scoring a goal for the team. With what force did Wayne hit the puck? 3. A tennis ball traveling at 10.0 m/s is returned by Venus Williams. It leaves her racket with a speed of 36.0 m/s in the opposite direction from which it came.

a) What is the change in momentum of the tennis ball? b) If the 0.060-kg ball is in contact with the racket for 0.020 s, with what average force has Venus hit the ball? 4. To demonstrate his new high-speed camera, Flash performs an experiment in the physics lab in which he shoots a pellet gun at a pumpkin to record the moment of impact on film. The 1.0-g pellet travels at 100. m/s until it embeds itself 2.0 cm into the pumpkin. What average
