ok, i get this question that says:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"An object of mass 3.0 kg is moving in the neg. x direction with a speed of 2 m/s. it is acted upon by a force with an impulse of 24 N s. What is the final momentum and the final velocity after that impulse has acted on the object? so i did

P(initial) = mv

P = 3 x -2 = 6

J = (mv)final - (mv)initial

24 = (mv)final - (-6)

18= mv

18 = (3.0)v

v = 6 m/s

so 18 is the final momentum and 6 is the final velocity?
