I'm not sure exactly sure how to set up this problem...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A hockey puck with a mass of 0.160 kg is at rest at the origin (x=0) on a horizontal, frictionless surface at time t=0, a force of 0.250 N is applied to the puck parallel to the X axis, the force is applied until time = 2.00s.

2. Relevant equations

What is the acceleration, position, and speed of the puck at t=2.00 s

3. The attempt at a solution

Impulse (J) = (F) * (∆T)

J = (0.250N)*(2.00s)

J = .5 NS

I know J = ∆ Momentum (P) ; and P = Mass * Velocity, but i'm not exactly sure how to calculate what it wants me to find.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jim
