floor with a momentum of 16 kg • m/s.
What is the change of momentum of the
ball?
(A) 4 kg • m/s
(B) 8 kg • m/s
(C) 32 kg • m/s
(D) 36 kg • m/s
(E) 40 kg • m/s A 2.5 kg ball is dropped onto a concrete

bcuz momentum is vector quantity u can not simply subtract them you have to be care ful with their vector directionsdw:1344183447716:dw
