You are riding in a car that crashes into a solid wall. The car comes to a complete stop without bouncing back. The car has a mass of 1500 kg and has a speed of 30 m/s before the crash. (this is about 65 mi/hr).
What is the net impulse that acts on the car to bring it to a stop? What is the net impulse that
acts on you to bring you to a stop?
What object exerts the force that causes the impulse that brings the car to a stop? What object
exerts the force that causes the impulse that brings you to a stop?
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
I’m not to sure how to find the net impulse, Don’t i need time?
Car to a stop= (1500kg) X (30/s)= 45000kg X 65=2925000
Object exerts force to bring the car to a stop is the wall.
Object that exerts force to bring me to a stop is the car.
