The driver of a 1000 kg car is speeding. He loses control and collides with a wall, coming to a stop. The crumple zone of the car absorbed 90 kN of force in 0.5 seconds. What was the car's speed at the time of impact?
Impulse (=force x time) = change in momentum
Just to add onto this: change in momentum is mv-mu
