A 2.0 kg rubber ball falling at 0.85 m/s bounces from the floor and moves upward at 0.65 m/s. If the ball was in contact with the floor for 0.15 s: what is the change in momentum of the ball? what was the impulse acting on the ball? what force did the floor exert on the ball?

    Consider the velocities as being in the same direction.

    Since the 2.0kg rubber ball had acquired a velocity of 0.65m/s [upward] from falling downward at 0.85m/s [2.0kg][0.85m/s]-[2.0kg][-0.65m/s=1.7kgm/s+1.3kg/s=3.0mkg/s Therefore change in the momentum of the ball was 3.0mkg/s

    To calculate the impulse, which is calculated by Impulse=Delta Momentum Impulse=3.0N/s Therefore the impulse on the ball was 3.0N/s. Note that impulse is equal to change in momentum.

    The amount of force exerted by the floor to the ball, which resulted in the chance in momentum of 3.0kgm/s, is calculated using the formula F*t=Delta P (change in momentum) Therefore, F*(0.15s)=3.0kgm/s F=3.0kgm/s/0.15s=20N Therefore the force exerted by the floor to the ball is 20N.
