A 10 g ball going at a speed of 5 m/s is kicked, and flies off at an angle of 35° at 25 m/s. What was the force of kick?
m = 0.0010 kg
vi = 5 m/s
θ = 35°
vf = 25 m/s
mvi = mvf
F = ma
The Attempt at a Solution
Would this count as an inelastic collision?
In the x direction:
.0010g(5m/s) + m(0m/s) = (.0010 kg + m)(25cos35)
After that, I'm really not sure how to get to the acceleration...
