Write an equation for impulse in terms of average force (F) and varying time (t).
, 2.What is momentum? Write an equation for change in momentum in terms of mass (m) and varying velocity (v). -
3.Knowing that the impulse of an object is the equivalent of the object’s change in momentum, writean equivalent equation for impulse equals change in momentum in terms of average force, mass, varying time, final velocity (vf), and initial velocity (vi). - 4.Solve for average force, using the equation from #3, with all of the variables from #3 in the answer. 5.What is the equation for average acceleration in terms of change in velocity (v) and varying time (t)? 6.Now using equation from #4, solve for average force in terms of mass and acceleration. How doesthis relate to Newton’s 2ndLaw?
7.Apply the equation from #3 to the egg being thrown into the sheet. Write this equation in terms ofthe egg. Label the variables and explain each in terms of the egg (massof egg, vinitial of egg, Ffelt by eggtfor egg to stop). Use this equation to explain why the egg did not break. If you wanted the egg to break, which two variables would you change and why? ,
