A steel ball with mass 0.347 kg falls onto a hard floor and bounces. Its speed just before hitting the floor is 23.6 m/s and its speed just after bouncing is 12.7 m/s. (a) What is the magnitude of the impulse of the ball?

2. Relevant equations

J=pf-pi

3. The attempt at a solution

J=.347kg(12.7m/s)-.347kg(-23.6m/s)

J=12.6kg*m/s
