2 bodies of equal masses are kept stationary at same position.Impulse I and force F is applied to the first and second body respectively.Please help to prove t=2I/F if the 2 bodies again meet after...

Since   objects at rest ,

An impulse is applied to it, then the impulse  that gives a stationary object a momentum

`mv` , where v is the velocity gained .

Force F is applied to another object  of mass m for t second,again this force will produce a velocity

Impulse =rate of change of momentum =m(v-0)/t=(mv)/t

After t second both meet

Impulse +t (mv)/t=F.t



t=(2. Impulse)/F
