My idea of impulse is still a bit weak from past questions I realised you have to find impulse by resolving on the same plane but why is that, for the question I attached what’s wrong with doing 0.25(52-28)=I

My idea of impulse is still a bit weak from past questions I realised you have to find impulse by resolving on the same plane but why is that, for the question I attached what’s wrong with doing 0.25(52-28)=I

A few things. Starting with the fact that impulse is a vector, not a scalar.

The impulse corresponds to the change in momentum (mv, so a vector) and is average force * time (or the integral of force over the time interval). So again a vector.

So you need to work out the change in momentum in each dimension, then pythagoras to get the magnitude and trig to get the direction.
