# Cricket bat impulse problem

1. Homework Statement
A 20 g cricket (Acheta domestica) leaps through a 2.2 m horizontal distance. The initial velocity of the cricket makes a 28° angle with the horizontal direction. If it takes the cricket 0.010 s to leave the ground, what is the magnitude of the impulse of the total force on the cricket that gives it the speed needed for the jump?

2. Homework Equations
I = F$$\Delta$$t = $$\Delta$$p
Motion formulas

First solve the projectile motion problem: How fast must the cricket leap at the given angle to reach 2.2m?

Then you can worry about the needed impulse.

Thanks I got it now.
