Regents Physics Notes: Impulse/Momentum

 Even though the Volkswagon will suffer greater damage the forces exerted are
_a__c_t_i_o_n___-_r_e__a_c__t_i_o_n__ forces and are therefore equal.  Since the Mack truck possess much greater ______m__a_s__s___ it also possesses more of a quantity
called _m___o_m___e_n__t_u_m___. o Note that this assumes that the VW and the truck have the sames__p_e__e_d______

 A vector quantity that is related to the __m__a__s_s___a_n__d__s__p_e__e_d_______ of a moving object  Objects with larger mass have _m___o_r_e__m___o_m___e_n__t_u_m___ than those with smaller mass and equal


 Objects with greater velocity have ___m__o__r_e_____________ than those with a smaller speed and

equal mass.


p = mv


p = momentum m= mass v = velocity

Units for momentum -- _K__g__m___/s_________ (Not same as newtons Kg m/s2)
Example 1: Find the momentum of the following objects: a. A baseball with a mass of 0.25 kg and a velocity of 20 m/s p = mv = (0.25kg) (20 m/s) = 5 kg m/s b. A train with a mass of 90,000 Kg and a velocity of 5 m/s p = mv = (90,000kg) (5 m/s) = 450,000 kg m/s c. A bullet with a mass of 0.100 kg and a velocity of 125 m/s p = mv = (0.100kg) (125 m/s) = 12.5 kg m/s

Ph6_notes1key Impulse
 A __f_o_r_c__e_______ being exerted over a given ___ti_m___e__________.  Causes a change in an object’s __m__o__m__e__n__tu__m_______.

J  Ft


J = impulse F = force t = time

Deriving Impulse vs. Momentum relationship Remember Newton’s second Law
Fnet = m a

Which formula defines acceleration? a = Δv / t

Substitute in Newton’s second law with this formula. Check the dimensional analysis (do the units work out?)

Fnet = m Δv / t Fnet t = m Δv

J = Δp

Impulse / Momentum problems
The larger the ____f_o__r_c_e_____ and the greater the _______t_i_m__e____ it is being exerted, the more it will change the _m___o_m___e_n__t_u_m__ of an object

Example 1: A force of 20 N acts on a 2.0 kg mass that starts out at rest for 10 s. Compute the impulse and the final momentum of the mass. Calculate the velocity of the mass after the completion of the 10 seconds.

F = 20 N m = 2.0 kg t = 10 s

J = F t = Δp J = (20 N) (10s) J = Δp = 200 N s

Δp = m Δv = m(vf – vi) 200 N s = 2.0 kg (vf – 0)

vf = 100 m/s

Example 2: A car that weighs 7840 N is accelerated from rest to a velocity of 25.0 m/s eastward by a force of 1000 N. What was the car’s change in momentum? How long did the force act to change the car’s momentum?

Example 3: A force of 6.00 N acts on a 3.00 kg object for 10.0 s. What is the object’s change in

momentum? What is its change in velocity?

60.0 kg m/s

20.0 m/s
