## Homework Statement

Your location is at the origin. When an object passes you, it is traveling 5 m/s in the −z direction. If the object's mass is 200 kg, and the net force on the object remains constant at ‹ 0, 0, −30 › N, what is the position of the object 20 seconds after it passes you?

## Homework Equations

The Change in momentum = Force * deltat

## The Attempt at a Solution

I solved for the impulse, and got the vector, <0,0,-600>N. This is equal to the final momentum minus the initial momentum. The initial momentum is <0,0,-8>m/s * 200kg. And the final momentum is pf = vf * 200kg. I solved for vf, using vf = vi + Fnet*deltat, but I am stuck.

I keep getting the wrong answer, and I am unsure of where I've went wrong and what I should do next. Thanks.
