What is impulse?
Write an equation for impulse in terms of average force (F) and varying time (
What is momentum?
Write an equation for change in momentum in terms of mass (m) and
varying velocity (
Knowing that the impulse of an object is the equivalent of the object’s change in momentum, write
an equivalent equation for impulse equals change in momentum in terms of average force, mass,
varying time, final velocity (v
), and initial velocity (v
Solve for average force, using the equation from #3, with all of the variables from #3 in the
What is the equation for average acceleration in terms of change in velocity (
v) and varying
Now using equation from #4, solve for average force in terms of mass and acceleration.
this relate to Newton’s 2
Rewrite equation from #4 beginning with Newton’s 2
yield the equation form #5.
