How much impulse did they experience?

  1. Nov 22, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    F=950
    T=0.12 S

    2. Relevant equations
    For impulse I should use the equation J=FT the problem with this is that it yields a seemingly incorrect answer

    3. The attempt at a solution
    J=950*0.12=114

    The problem seems a bit oddly stated: He produces the force in 0.12 seconds is not the same as he exerted the force for 0.12 seconds. What was the average force exerted during that time?

    The question does not mention an average force, I believe my teacher has made a mistake on this question.
