Impulse of a bouncing ball

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Ok, I am supposed to find the impulse of a .12 kg ball dropped from a height of 1.25 meters. It bounces back from the floor to a height of .6 meters. Not really sure of all the equations needed, I need a lot of help.

    Impulse is equal to the change in momentum if that helps any.
