Unformatted text preview: What about just after? Explain briefly. b. (2.5 pts) Draw a complete momentum chart (with actual numbers in the cells) of the situation before and after the collision. From it, determine the impulse the other student imparts to you ? momentum: p = m v impulse = change in momentum 2 Solution: a. Your total momentum is (60 kg)(3 m/s) = 180 kgm/s. That of the other cyclist is 360 kgm/s, but in the opposite direction. Thus the total momentum is 180 kgm/s, in the direction of the other cyclist. b. We can write the momentum chart as follows: initial change fnal you other cyclist total 180 kgm/s240 kgm/s60 kgm/s360 kgm/s +240 kgm/s120 kgm/s180 kgm/s180 kgm/s Thus the impulse of the other student on you is 240 kgm/s (that is, in the direction opposite your initial motion)....
