1. A 0.45-kg soccer ball rolls to a player with a velocity of 3 m/s, in the direction
shown, before being kicked by the player.After the ball is kicked, it moves in the
direction shown with a velocity of 10 m/s.If the ball is in contact with the player’s
foot for 0.10 seconds, determine the magnitude and direction of the average
force exerted by the player during the kick.

2. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the fastest recorded baseball
pitch was delivered by Nolan Ryan in 1974. The pitch was clocked at 100.9 mi/hr
(45.0 m/s). Determine the impulse required to give a 0.145-kg baseball such a
momentum.
3. Jerome plays middle linebacker for South's varsity football team. In a game
against cross-town rival North, he delivered a hit to North's 82-kg running back,
changing his eastward velocity of 5.6 m/s into a westward velocity of 2.5 m/s.
4. An interesting story is often told of baseball star Johnny Bench when he was a
rookie catcher in 1968. During a Spring Training game, he kept signaling to star
pitcher Jim Maloney to throw a curve ball. Maloney continuously shook off
Bench's signal, opting to throw fastballs instead. The rookie catcher walked to the
mound and told the veteran Maloney that his fastball wasn't fast enough and that
he should throw some curve balls. Bench again signaled for a curve. Maloney
shook of the signal and threw a fastball. Before the ball reached the plate, Bench
took off his glove; he then caught the pitch barehanded.

a. Determine the impulse required to stop a 0.145-kg baseball moving
at 35.7 m/s (80.0 mi/hr).
b. If this impulse is delivered to the ball in 0.020 seconds, then what is
magnitude of the force acting between the bare hand and the ball?
5. While playing basketball in PE class, Logan lost his balance after making a lay-
up and colliding with the padded wall behind the basket. His 74-kg body
decelerated from 7.6 m/s to 0 m/s in 0.16 seconds.
a. Determine the force acting upon Logan's body.
b. If Logan had hit the concrete wall moving at the same speed, his
momentum would have been reduced to zero in 0.0080 seconds.
Determine what the force on his body would have been for such an
abrupt collision.
6. NASA's Langley Research Center has been experimenting with the use of air
bags to soften the landings of crew exploration vehicles (CEV) on land. What
stopping time will be required in order to safely stop a 7250 kg CEV moving at
7.65 m/s with an average force of 426000 N (an average force of 6 Gs)?
7. Aaron Agin nodded off while driving home from play practice this past Sunday
evening. His 1500-kg car hit a series of guardrails while moving at 19.8 m/s. The
first guard rail delivered a resistive impulse of 5700 N•s. The second guard rail
pushed against his car with a force of 79000 N for 0.12 seconds. The third guard
rail collision lowered the car's velocity by 3.2 m/s. Determine the final velocity of
the car.
8. An 82-kg male and a 48-kg female pair figure skating team are gliding across the
ice at 7.4 m/s, preparing for a throw jump maneuver. The male skater tosses the
female skater forward with a speed of 8.6 m/s. Determine the speed of the male
skater immediately after the throw.
9. A 92-kg fullback moving south with a speed of 5.8 m/s is tackled by a 110-kg
lineman running west with a speed of 3.6 m/s. Assuming momentum
conservation, determine the speed and direction of the two players immediately
after the tackle.
10. How long would it take for a net upward force of 100N, to increase the speed of a
50-kg box from 100 m/s to 150 m/s?
11. A 3-kg ball traveling 6 m/s east has a perfectly elastic collision with a 4-kg ball
traveling 8 m/s west. After the collision, the 3-kg ball travels 10 m/s west.
a. What was the total momentum before the collision?
b. What is the total momentum after the collision of the objects?
c. What velocity will the 4-kg ball have after the collision?
12. A 10-kg Block A moves with a velocity of 2 m/s to the right and collides with a 10-
kg Block B which is at rest. After the collision Block A stops moving and Block B
moves to the right.
a. Find the total momentum after the collision
b. Find the velocity of Block B after the collision

13. A 4-kg rifle fires a 5 x 10-3 – kg bullet at a velocity of 500 m/s. what is the velocity
acquired by the rifle?
14. Bailey is on the tenth frame of her recent bowling competition and she needs to
pick up the last pin for a spare and the first place trophy. She rolls the 7.05-kg
ball down the lane and it hits the 1.52-kg pin head on. The ball was moving at
8.24 m/s before the collision. The pin went flying forward at 13.2 m/s. Determine
the post-collision speed of the ball.
15. Rex (m=86 kg) and Tex (92 kg) board the bumper cars at the local carnival. Rex
is moving at a full speed of 2.05 m/s when he rear-ends Tex who is at rest in his
path. Tex and his 125-kg car lunge forward at 1.40 m/s. Determine the post-
collision speed of Rex and his 125-kg car.
