oh ok,
so if i were to have the force constantly be applied perpendicular to the ball than i CAN use the distance formula?
if so, lets say the ball has initial velocity 'v_{i}', and a force is applied, the final velocity can be calculated using [itex]{v_f}={v_i}+\frac{Ft}{m}[/itex], could i also calculate the distance travled: [itex]d={v_i}t+\frac{F{t^2}}{2m}[/itex] ?
