42 The Impulse-Momentum Theorem When a net force acts upon a body for a period of time, the Impulse applied by the force is equal to the body’s change in Momentum! Impulse-Momentum Theorem #1: :

42 Momentum Changes and Bouncing Is it more dangerous when a flower pot falls on your head and breaks or stays in one piece and bounces back up?
When an object bounces, what happens to it’s velocity? How does that effect it’s change of momentum?
Since ∆p is greater in bouncing situations, the Impulse applied will be greater! The Law of Conservation of Momentum :

42 The Law of Conservation of Momentum Internal forces are forces that act within a system, external forces are forces that act on a system from outside…
If a system is not affected by any net external force, it is said to be “ISOLATED”.
In an isolated system, the total linear momentum is always conserved! Example - Recoil :

42 Example - Recoil A hunter shoots a 0.22 rifle and the 3.0 kg gun recoils with a speed of 0.042 m/s. If the bullet has a mass of 0.5 g, find the muzzle speed of the gun. Example - Recoil ~ Answer :

42 Example #7 Jocko, who has a mass of 60kg and stands at rest on ice, catches a 20kg ball that is thrown to him at 10km/h. How fast do Jocko and the ball move across the ice? (a) 0 km/hr (b) 2.5 km/hr (c) 200 km/hr (d) no way to determine Answer: (b) :
29
of
42 Answer: (b) (b): The momentum before the catch is all in the ball, 20kg x 10km/h = 200kg·km/h. This is also the momentum after the catch, where the moving mass is 80kg—60kg for Jocko and 20kg for the caught ball.
80kg x v = 200kg·km/h v = 200kg·km/h/80kg = 2.5km/h Answer: (b) :

42 Example #8 Which would be more damaging: Driving into a massive concrete wall
Driving at the same speed into a head-on collision with an identical car traveling toward you at the same speed
Neither - the same amount of damage
Not enough information given Answer: (c) :
32
of
42 Answer: (c) (c): Both cases are equivalent, because either way, your car rapidly decelerates to a dead stop. The dead stop is easy to see when hitting the wall, and identical cars at equal speeds means equal momenta—zero before, zero after collision. Example #9 :

42 Example #9 Strictly speaking, when a gun is fired, compared with the momentum of the recoiling gun, the opposite momentum of the bullet is (a) less
(b) more
(c) the same
(d) no way to determine
(Neglect the effect of the hand.) Answer: (a) :
34
of
42 Answer: (a) (a) Why? Because more than just a bullet comes out of the barrel when a gun is fired. The gas, formed when the powder in the cartridge burns, pushes the bullet along the barrel and this gas too has appreciable mass and exits at high speed. So, Momentum of recoiling gun = momentum of bullet + momentum of gases. The End... :
