Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why don't we use the principles of Impulse and momentum? Force is defined as\[{\bf \vec F} = {d \vec p \over dt}\]where momentum \(p\) is defined as\[\vec p = m*\vec v\]Now let's define impulse as\[{\bf I} = \int\limits\limits_{t_1}^{t_2} {\bf \vec F} dt = \int\limits\limits_{t_1}^{t_2} {d \vec p \over dt} dt = \int\limits_{p_1}^{p_2} d \vec p = \Delta \vec p\]We know the force applied, the initial velocity, and the time the force is applied for. Let's manipulate our expression for impulse to make use of these three things. \[\vec {\bf F}~t = \Delta p\](Note \({\bf \vec F} ~ t\) is after integration of the second term in the above equation.)Expanding further yields, \[{\bf \vec F}~t = m_f* \vec v_f  m_i * \vec v_i\]Since mass doesn't change\[{\bf \vec F} ~ t = m(\vec v_f  \vec v_i)\]This can be manipulated to solve for \(v_f\)
