1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data for an FDB of an tennis ball hitting the racquet. Is the F(a)=F(n) or is F(a) larger then F(n). 3. The attempt at a solution I think that F(a) = F(n). According to Newton's second law, they both receive the same force, however since the tennis ball has less mass, it receiver a larger acceleration then the tennis racquet (which is also anchored by the player's arm). Im pretty sure im right, but it's always good to be sure.
