a 0.40kg soccer ball approaches a player horizontally with a velocity of 18m/s north. the player strikes the ball and causes it to move in the opposite direction with a velocity of 22m/s. what impulse was delivered to the ball by the player?
Impulse = Ft = (m)(delta v) delta v = change in velocity = velocity final - velocity initial. = -22m/s - +18m/s = -40m/s. mdeltav = (0.40kg)(-40m/s) = -16kgm/s or -16Ns.
