Free fall 5

Jeremy accidently dropped his toy stuffed animal from the balcony of his apartment on the fourth floor. The toy hit the ground at a velocity of 16.0 meters/second. At impact, it took 2.0 seconds for the toy’s velocity to reach 0 meters/second. If the toy has a mass of 0.25 kilograms, what's the force of the impact?

Correct answer:

F =  2 N

Step-by-step explanation:

m=0.25 kg v0=16 m/s v2=0 m/s t=2 s  a=v0v2t=1602=8 m/s2  F=m a=0.25 8=2 N
