**Unformatted text preview: **AP Physics B Impulse and Momentum Impulse = Momentum Consider Newtons 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 . ) 4 . 5 ( 100 . / * 626 . ) 26 . 6 ( 100 . = =- =- = = N F F v v m v m Ft o 6 . 116 )) 26 . 6 ( 4 . 5 ( 100 . ) 01 .
