Impulse = Momentum Consider Newton’s 2 nd Law and the definition of acceleration Units of Impulse: Units of Momentum: Momentum is defined as “Inertia in Motion” Ns Kg x m/s
Example A 100 g ball is dropped from a height of h = 2.00 m above the floor. It rebounds vertically to a height of h'= 1.50 m after colliding with the floor. (a) Find the momentum of the ball immediately before it collides with the floor and immediately after it rebounds, (b) Determine the average force exerted by the floor on the ball. Assume that the time interval of the collision is 0.01 seconds. s m gh v mv mgh K U E E o o o A B / 26 . 6 2 * 8 . 9 * 2 2 2 1 2 = = = = = = s m gh v U K E E o A B / 4 . 5 5 . 1 * 8 . 9 * 2 2 = = = = = s m kg p s m kg p v m p after before / * 54 . 0 ) 4 . 5 ( 100 . 0 / * 626 . 0 ) 26 . 6 ( 100 . 0 = = - = - = = N F F v v m v m Ft o 6 . 116 )) 26 . 6 ( 4 . 5 ( 100 . 0 ) 01 . 0 ( ) ( = - - = - = =

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
