Conservation of Linear Momentum A stuntman falls into an airbag. Had he landed on bare ground, the stopping time would have been 10 times shorter and the collision would have been lethal. Does the presence of the airbag increase, decrease, or leave unchanged the values of (a) the stuntman’s change in momentum, (b) the impulse stopping the stuntman, and (c) the force stopping the stuntman.
