## Homework Statement

A beam of molecular oxygen containing 10

^{10}molecules/cm

^{3}and average speed of 500 m/s strikes (elastic collision) a plate at an angle of 30º with the normal direction.

Calculate the exerted pressure on the plate.

## Homework Equations

P = Impluse x Flux

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried to use the equation in the attached file but in this case we have a constant angle so I can´t just simply integrate.

Any help would be appreciated.
