The following are momentum problems. Use the equations in your book/notes to solve them.

1) A kilogram motorcycle is moving at a speed of m/s. What is the momentum of the cycle?

2) If the motorcycle above crashes into a wall and stops in a time of 0.05 seconds, how much force acted on the cycle to bring it to a stop?

3) A small car (mass = kilograms), moving at m/s, crashes head on with a kilogram truck moving at m/s in the opposite direction. If the two cars become intertwined and mangled (inelastic), with what velocity does the wreckage move? (Don't forget direction!)

This internet problem javascript and source code was adapted from that of Neil Schmidgall of Glenbrook South High School.
