In this problem we have to analyse how do the momentum of the person varies upon striking the ground.

Step 1 of 3

Concept:

Momentum is a physical quantity which conveys information about the amount of motion contained by the body. If a body of mass  moves with a velocity , magnitude of the momentum possess by the body is,

Law of conservation of linear momentum: If no external force acts on the system, then the final momentum of the system is equal to the initial momentum of the system. Thus momentum is conserved.
