Answer:

The impulse of the net force on the ball during its collision with the wall is 25N

Explanation:

Step one :

Given data

Mass =5kg

Velocity v1=10m/s

Velocity v2=5m/s

The equation for impulse is given as

P=m(v1-v2)

Where P =impulse

Substituting our values into the equation we have

P=5*(10-5)

P=5*5

P=25N

The impulse 25N

What is impulse?

Impulse is the change of momentum of an object when the object is acted upon by a force for an interval of time.
