Demo: Impulse and Force
While viewing the Force on Smart Cart Vector Display, the cart collides with the end stop with the magnetic bumper and then with an added paper bumper. Both collisions have about the same change in velocity and thus the impulses are the same. However, the paper bumper extends the time of the collision and thus reduces the maximum force.
