Transcript for this Giancoli solution

The momentum of the sparrow is given with the momentum formula: ‘p’ equals mass ‘m’ times velocity ‘v’, which is zero point zero two eight kilograms times eight point four meters per second and the answer for that is zero point two four kilograms meters per second. In the 5th Edition the sparrow instead weighs zero point zero two two kilograms and is going at eight point one meters per second and the 5th Edition answer is zero point one seven eight two which in two significant figures is zero point one eight kilograms meters per second.
