    2 balls A and B have mass 0.6kg and 0.9kg respectively. initially both are at rest, Ball A is given an impulse of 4.5Ns towards B
    3a)Modelling the surface as a smooth horizontal plane, calculate the speed of A before it collides with B
    b) After collision balls travel in opposite directions. Direction of A is reverse and moves at 1.5ms^-1. Find the speed of B after collision
    c) following collision, B is brought to rest in 3 seconds as a result of a constant resistive force,R, applied directly opposite to its motion. Find the magnitude of R

    Thanks lol

    Careful

    Your a is correct but there is no need to multiply your mass by g

    F = M * A
    F = 0.9 * 2 is fine. Remember your dimension is mass, not force in the "M" of "M * A"
