A boy catches— with bare hands and his arms rigidly extended—a 0.16-kg baseball coming directly toward him at a speed of 25 m/s. He emits an audible “Ouch!” because the ball stings his hands. He learns quickly to move his hands with the ball as he catches it. If the contact time of the collision is increased from 3.5 ms to 8.5 ms in this way, how do the magnitudes of the aver-age impulse forces compare?
Answer to relevant QuestionsA one-dimensional impulse force acts on a 3.0-kg object as diagrammed in Fig. 6.32. Find (a) The magnitude of the impulse given to the object, (b) The magnitude of the average force, and (c) The final speed if the object ...At a shooting competition, a contestant fires and a 12.0-g bullet leaves the rifle with a muzzle speed of 130 m/s. The bullet hits the thick target backing and stops after traveling 4.00 cm. Assuming a uniform acceleration, ...To get off a frozen, frictionless lake, a 65.0-kg person takes off a 0.150-kg shoe and throws it horizontally, directly away from the shore with a speed of 2.00 m/s. If the person is 5.00 m from the shore, how long does he ...A 10-g bullet moving horizontally at penetrates a 3.0-kg wood block resting on a horizontal surface.
