Recommended Solution

Recall that impulse is

I =

t2
t1

F dt

(1.151)

So we just want to find the area under this plot. If you don’t recall this equation, take note

that we are given a y-axis in newtons and an x-axis in seconds. The only way to get these two

units to end with kg·m/s is to take the area. Using the equation for the area under a triangle,

you can quickly get I = 2 kg·m/s

Correct Answer

(C)
