  1. A truck is carring the load moving with a velocity of 50 km/h having a mass of 3000 kg clashes with a wall in 2 s. Calculate its Impact force?


    Step 1 :  

    given: mass m = 3000 kg,


               Velocity v = 50 km/hr


                               = $\frac{50 \times 1000 m}{60 \times 60 s}$


                               = 13.89 m/s.


             Time interval during impact, t = 2 s.



    Step 2 :  

    Impact force is given by the formula:


    F = $\frac{2mv}{t}$


       = $\frac{2 \times 3000 \times 13.89}{2}$


       = 41670 N



    Answer  :  

    The Impact force is 41670 N.



  2. A large stone having 100 kg is falling from a hill with the velocity 30 m/s falls on a smooth floor in 5 s.Calculatethe Impact force applied on the surface?


    Step 1 :  

    given: mass m = 100 kg,


               Velocity v = 30 m/s,


               time interval during impact, t = 5 s.



    Step 2 :  

    Impact force is given by the formula:


    F = $\frac{2mv}{t}$


       = $\frac{2 \times 100 \times 30}{5}$


       = 1200 N



    Answer  :  

    The large stone is producing force of 1200 N on the surface.
