Momentum Impulse Help

  1. Dec 8, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A 5.00 kg object traveling at 10 m/s east. Determine the velocity of the mass after an impulse of 30.0 NxS due east applied.

    2. Relevant equations
    Impulse=F x T p=m x v impulse= change in P

    3. The attempt at a solution
    M= 5.0 Kg Pf-Pi=Ft Pf=Pi+Ft Pi= (5x10) +30 Pf= 50+30=80 Vf=80 divided by 5 =16
    Vi=10 m/s
    Impulse= 30 n x s
