A hammer strikes a nail with a 10N force for .01 seconds. Calculate the impulse of the hammer

1 Answer

Answer:

Impulse = 0.1 Kgm/s

Explanation:

Given the following data;

Force, F = 10N

Time, t = 0.01 seconds

To find impulse

An impulse can be defined as the net force acting an object for a very short period of time.

Mathematically, impulse is given by the formula;

Impulse = force * time

Substituting into the equation, we have;

Impulse = 10 * 0.01

Impulse = 0.1 kgm/s

Therefore, the impulse of the hammer is 0.1 kilogram meter per seconds.
