## Homework Equations

Impulse= mass of ball * velocity final for ball

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have tried solving this equation, but I cannot figure out how to find the final velocity of the ball. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time. (It may be that the equation is incorrect.)
