(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 5.00 kg ball strikes a wall with a velocity of 6.0 m/s to the left. The ball bounces off with a velocity of 5.0 m/s to the right. If the ball is in contact with the wall for 0.30 s, what is the constant force exerted on the ball by the wall?

2. Relevant equations

f=p/t

3. The attempt at a solution

Ok so i found p which i did mv or (5)(11) then plugged it to p/t and did 55/0.30 and got 183.3 N to the right...is that correct?

Thanks!
