Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Sure, what did you get for the change in momentum?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I took the change in velocity to be 6 m/s. And then I multiplied mass into this change in velocity. So I got 3 as my momentum. :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, the change in velocity is 12+6 since it changes direction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That change in momentum divided by the time of contact (1.5s,really? That's a long contact time . . .) = the average force.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm sorry, I used the impulse formula, and I got the correct answer. :) It doesn't really make a difference.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\large F_{avg}=\frac{(0.5 kg)(18 m/s)}{1.5 s}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I also recommend getting in the habit of checking the units in your formulas. \[\large N=kg\frac{m}{s^2}\] \[\large kg\frac{m}{s^2} = \frac{(kg)(m/s)}{(s)}\]
