Force that will be created on the component

  1. Apr 19, 2005 #1
    a mass of 22 kg is dropped vertically from 180mm on a component. I know the final velocity while the hit takes place is 3.53m/sqsec. What is
    the force that will be created on the component and to what duration the force lasts.

    How much force does the mass exert on the componant? Wouldn't the force the componant exerted be equal and opposite, because its pushing back on the mass, to the magnitude of the force the componant exerts? As far as calculating the time I don't know.
