A boy of mass 60.0 kg is rescued from a hotel fire by leaping into a firefighter's net. The window from which he leapt was 8.0 m above the net. The firefighters lower their arms as he lands in the net so that he is brought to a complete stop in a time of 0.40 s.
1.What is his change in momentum during the 0.40 s interval?
Answer: 751.2 kg·m/s
2.What is the impulse on the net due to the boy during the interval? [Hint: Don't ignore gravity.]
3.What is the average force on the net due to the boy during the interval?
Answer: kN i got 1878 N and converting to kN is 1.88 kN but for some reason it indicates it is wrong
2.i don't know
The Attempt at a Solution
on 2. I don't know what to do since it mentions not to ignore gravity does that means i just have to multiply answer1xgravity?
What is wrong with number 3? I thought i got it right since i just did 751.2/.40s=1878 N
