Solution

## The correct option is C −9^iGiven, u=6^i+^j As we know impulse will act along the line of impact. So, component of velocity parallel to the wall remians unchanged while component of velocity perpendicular to the wall will be, given by e=Velocity of seperationVelocity of approach ⇒ e=(0−vx)(6−0)=0.5⇒ vx=−3 Hence, velocity of ball after the collision →v=vx^i+vy^j=−3^i+^j Thus, impulse →J=ΔP=(m→v−m→u) along LOI ⇒ →J=ΔP=m(−3^i−6^j) ⇒ →J=1×(−9^i)=−9^i
