Problem: A 1000-kg car is traveling at 20.0 m/s toward the north (let that be the +y-direction). During a collision, the car receives an impulse of 1.00 x 104 N•s toward the south. What is the velocity of the car after the impulse is applied to the car? A) 10.0 m/s south B) 0.00 m/s C) 20.0 m/s north D) 10.0 m/s north E) 30.0 m/s north
