  1. When a rubber balloon held between the hands is pressed, its shape changes. This happens because:

A. Balanced forces act on the balloon

B. Unbalanced forces act on the balloon

C. Frictional forces act on the balloon

D. Gravitational forces act on the balloon


Answer Key:

  1. B

Explanation: Momentum = mass × velocity = m × v

mass, m = 75 kg

velocity, v = 2 m/s

Putting these values in the  formula,

Momentum = 75 × 2 kg. m/s

          = 150 kg.m/s
