Find the momentum for a 2.8-kg brick parachuting straight downward at a constant speed of 7.6 m/s .


Expert Answer

Step 1

Since the speed of the brick parachute is travelled in a downward direction, so the momentum of the object is calculated from the expression.

Step 2

Substitute the ...

21.28 kg m/s
-21.3 kg
21kg m/s

Image Transcriptionclose

p=(2.8kg)(7.6m/s) 21.28 kg m/s -21.3 kg m/s 21kg m/s
