The Impulse-Momentum Theorem 1. Make free-body diagrams of the ball and the force plate just before and during an impact. Label the forces. Ignore air resistance. You may enlarge the drawing canvas and move captions. 2. Calculate the maximum height h 21 after the first bounce and before the second bounce from the time difference between the first two bounces, t 2 – t 1 . Calculate the speed just after the first bounce and just before the second bounce, v 21 . Similarly, write the expressions for h 32 and v 32 . Also, write the y-component of the change in momentum, Δp y2 .

3. Paste your raw data here. Data boxes for the second, third, and fourth bounces should show the integral of the first peak and half valley in the set of peaks corresponding to one bounce. 4.
