Change in momentum

  1. May 12, 2010 #1
    1. A 20kg box traveling at 10m/s is pushed with 48N of force for 12 seconds. What is the change in momentum?

    3. How would you find the change with this?

    * I know the momentum of the ball initially is 200.

    So you get the momentum by multiplying velocity with mass. What will be the velocity of the box if it is pushed with 48 N for 12 seconds?
