Homework Help: Colision problem (Simple)

  1. Sep 7, 2014 #1
    Hey guys I'm new here and also new at USA.
    So i'm having some troubles with unit conversion.
    How do I solve this problem? I know it's really simple but I can't figure it out.

    "Estimate the magnitude of the force, in lbf, exerted on a 12-lb goose in a collision of duration 10^−3 s with an airplane taking off at 150 miles/h."

    Thanks for the help

    What's the problem?

    One suggestion. The Rules ask you to follow the HW template when posting a problem. If you had done this, you would have shown the necessary formula(s) required for solution, which you have omitted.
