Hey im in 12 grade but this is advanced placement so its college level... Anyways i could use some help on this problem i have(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 5kg ball initally rest at the edfe of a 2-meter long, 1.2 meter high frictionless tavle, as show above. A hard plastic cude of mass .5kg slides across the table at a speed of 26 m/s and strikes the ball, causing the ball to leave the table in the direction in which the cude was moving. The figure below shows a graph of the force exerted on the ball by the cude as a function of time

graph is:

as time goes from 0-4 seconds, the force rises o-2.0(x10^3 Newtons).

from 4.0-6.0 seconds the F stays at 2.0 (x10^3 Newtons)

6-10 seconds force falls to 0. so it looks like a table /**\ type thing...

Anyways, it wants the total impulse given to the ball?
