1. During a collision, what is the relationship between mass and impulse on the object?
2. How would I prove this in a lab

### Jonatan Stigsson

I=(m*v1)-(m*v0)

v0 is the velocity after the collision.

Impulse = change in momentum = final momentum (after collision) - initial momentum (before collision).
I = m*vf - m*vi
Impulse is defined as:
Impulse I = ∫F*dt, where F is the net force on the object and the integral is over the time of the collision.

As far as the lab is concerned, I do not know what your bufget is, but here is a reference:

Put a scale on the ground, step on it and read what is says.
Put a pillow under the scale, be careful, step on it and read what it says. (you can use a cell phone to record the scale's readings if you want to be more precise.)

Have you looked at the Maths or do you just want a qualitative view of this?
