## Impulse and Momentum

### Terminology

• Impulse: FΔt, or the product of the average force on object and the time interval over which it acts (measures in Newton-seconds)

• Momentum: mv, or the product of the object’s mass and the objects velocity

• Impulse-momentum Theorem: FΔt= pf –pi ; The impulse on an object is equal to the object’s final momentum mines the object’s initial momentum (p= momentum)

### Concepts

• The momentum of an object is the product of its mass and velocity and is a vector quantitiy.

• The impulse of an object is the average net force exerts on the object multiplied by the time interval over which the force acts.

• The impulse on an object is equal to the change in momentum of the object.

### Questions

• A pitcher claims he can throw a 0.151 kg baseball with as much momentum as a 3.0 g bullet moving with a speed of 1.50  103 m/s. Which of the following is true

• a) ball has greater kinetic energy.

• b) both have the same kinetic energy.

• c) the bullet has greater kinetic energy.

• None of the above

• A pitcher throws a 0.15 kg baseball so that it crosses home plate horizontally with a speed of 10 m/s. It is hit straight back at the pitcher with a final speed of 24 m/s. Assume the direction of the initial motion of the baseball to be positive.

• What is the impulse delivered to the ball?

• Find the average force exerted by the bat on the ball if the two are in contact for 2.0  10-3 s.

• F=MA

• F=M (ΔV/ ΔT)

• P=MV

• FΔt= MΔV

• P= momentum

• V=veolicity

• M= mass

• F= force

• T= time

## Conservation of Linear Momentum in Collisions

### Terminology

• Closed system: a system that does not gain or lose mass

• Isolated system: a closed system on which the net external force is zero

• Law of conservation of momentum: states that the momentum of any closed, isolated system does not change

### Concepts and Equations

• In a linear collision, momentum is neither gained nor loss. Momentum is transferred to another object.

• ½m1iv1i² + ½m2iv2i²= ½m1fv1f² + ½m2fv2f²

• m1v1i + m2v2i= m1v1f + m2v2f

• m1v1i + m2iv2i= vf (m1+ m2)

### Quesions

• A 1245 kg car traveling initially with a speed of 25.0 m/s in an easterly direction crashes into the rear end of a 9100 kg truck moving in the same direction at 20.0 m/s. The velocity of the car right after the collision is 18.0 m/s to the east.

• What is the velocity of the truck right after the collision?

• In a football game, a receiver is standing still, having just caught a pass. Before he can move, a tackler, running at a velocity of +4.8 m/s, grabs him. The tackler holds onto the receiver, and the two move off together with a velocity of +2.6 m/s. The mass of the tackler is 116 kg. Assuming that momentum is conserved, find the mass of the receiver.

• A) 121 kg

• B)107 kg

• C) 73 kg

• D) 98 kg
