Answers:

1. Enter the following into the Google calculator and press Enter to produce the results shown.

  • convert 2205 lb to kg = 1000.17118 kilograms
  • convert 33.6 mph to m/s = 15.020544 meters / second
  • 1000 kg*15 m/s = 15000 m kg / s

Therefore, the initial momentum = 15000*kg*m/s at 0 degrees

2. 1000 kg*30 m/s = 30000 m kg / s at 0 degrees

3. 2000 kg*15 m/s = 30000 m kg / s at 0 degrees

4. 2000 kg*30 m/s = 60000 m kg / s at 0 degrees

Change in momentum due to change in speed and direction

A car with a weight of 10000 newtons is moving in a direction of 90 degrees at 40m/s. After going around a curve in the road, the car is moving in a direction of 0 degrees at 20 m/s. What is the change in momentum of the car?

Solution:

While this problem could be solved using the Google calculator, because of the number of steps involved, JavaScript is probably a better approach.

The solution script for this problem is shown in Listing 1 .
