Answer:

#11.3137 kg.m//s#

Explanation:

Impulse may be given as change in momentum as follows by #I(t)=Fdt=mdv#.

#therefore I(t)=mdv#

#=md/dt(sin5t+cos3t)#

#=8(5cos5t-3sin3t)#

#=40cos5t-24sin3t#

#thereforeI((3pi)/4)=40cos((5*3pi)/4)-24sin((3*3pi)/4)#

#=40/sqrt2-24/sqrt2#

#=16/sqrt2#

#11.3137 kg.m//s#
