The ice-hockey puck with a mass of 0.20 kg has a velocity of 12 m/s before being struck by the hockey stick. After the impact the puck: moves in the new direction shown with a velocity of 18 m/s. If the stick is in contact with the puck for 0.04 s, compute the magnitude of the average force F exerted by the stick on the puck during contact, and find the angle P made by F with the x-direction.
The question belongs to Mechanical Engineering and the question is about ice-hockey puck being struck with the hockey stick. The average magnitude of the force exerted by the stick on the puck and the angle and the direction of the puck needs to be calculated. The calculation has been given in the solution in detail.
