6-1. (a) Momentum = mv.



(b)Momentum = mv = (12 kg) 4.0 ms 48 kg ms .
6-2. (a) Change in momentum = mvf mv0 m(vf v0 ).

(b)Change in momentum = m(vf v0 ) (2.8 kg) 4.2 ms 1.1 ms 8.7 kg ms .
6-3. (a) Change in momentum = mass (final velocity initial velocity). The initial velocity is +v0. The
final velocity is vf. So the change in momentum is m(vf v0 ) m(vf v0 ).
(b)Any sufficiently large impulse in the x direction would do ita kick, rebounding from a wall,
etc.

(c)Change in momentum = m(vf v0 ) 0.50 kg 2.6 ms 1.0 ms 1.8 kg ms . The magnitude of
the change in momentum is 1.8 kg ms .

6-4. (a) Change in momentum = mass (final velocity initial velocity). The initial velocity is +v. The
final velocity is v. So the change in momentum is m(v v) 2mv. The magnitude of the
change in momentum is 2mv.
(b)The magnitude of the impulse is the same as that of the change in momentum = 2mv.

(c)Change in momentum = 2mv 2 0.050 kg 7.0 ms 0.70 kg ms .
6-5. (a) Impulse = Ft.
(b)Momentum = mv.

6-6. (a) Momentum of the truck = mv.



(b) mv (3500 kg) 18 ms 63, 000 kg ms .
(c)Because neither the temperature of the road nor the headwind speed figure into our equations we
dont have to worry about them in our solution to the problem.

6-7. (a) Change in momentum = (mv) = mv.

6-14. (a) Since the baseball will return to its launch elevation with the same speed but moving in the
opposite direction, its momentum there will be mv, directed downward.
(b)In this case the balls speed when it returns will be less, so the magnitude of its final
momentum will be less than that of its initial momentum.

6-15. (a) The birds velocity goes from v to zero, so (the magnitude v) = v and the momentum changes
by an amount mv. The impulse acting on the bird must have the same magnitude, mv.
(b)To send the bird flying off in the opposite direction would require a bigger impulse than
simply stopping the bird. Assuming the same impact time, this would be a bigger force on the
bird, which would make the birds recovery less likely.

(b)Momentum = ? Twice the time in the air twice the impulse on the chunk of ice
twice the change in momentum. So the final momentum would be mg(2t) = 2mgt.

6-23. (a) Momentum mv ? Calling downward the positive direction,


from vf2 v02 2ad with v0 0, a g, and d h

(c)Although we know the change in momentum of the balloon when it stops, we dont know the
time over which the impact force acts so we cant calculate the force.

6-24. (a) TheimpulseFt (mv) m(vf v0 ). The equation directs us to find the velocity with which the
ball hits the anvil and the velocity with which it leaves the anvil. Lets call upward the positive
direction. Well start from vf2 v02 2ad, withv0 0, vf vhittheanvil , a g, andd h.

On the way down, (vhit the anvil ) 2(g)(h) vhit the anvil 2gh. (We take the
negative root because the balls velocity is in the negative direction (down).)
On the way up,

6-27. (a) ? No external horizontal forces act on the two-blob system. Since the final
vm-blob
momentum of the system was zero, the initial momenta of the two individual blobs must have
been equal in magnitude but opposite in direction. Using v for their speeds we can write: From

(b)The speed of the more massive blob was 0.5 2 ms 1 ms .
v2m-puck
6-30. (a) ? No external horizontal forces act on the two-puck system. The initial momentum
vm-puck
of the system of pucks was zero, so the final momentum of the system must also be zero. The
final momenta of the single puck and of the double puck must be equal in magnitude but
opposite in direction. Using v for their speeds we can write: From

the opposite direction).

6-34. (a) m2 = ? Since no external forces act on the two-astronaut system the momentum of the system is
conserved. The initial momentum of the two-astronaut-system is zero. After the push the two
astronauts individual momenta are equal in magnitude but opposite in direction. Since we are

6-35. (a) vgun = ? Since Carmelita holds the gun loosely, there are no external horizontal forces on the gun

(b)If she holds the gun tightly, the thing doing the recoiling is Carmelita + rifle. The same
impulse acting on a larger mass results in a lower recoil velocity.

6-36. (a) vlauncher = ? There are no external horizontal forces on the launcher + projectile system when the
gun fires, so the horizontal momentum of the system is conserved. The initial momentum of the

the opposite direction) is V2.
