A barefoot field-goal kicker imparts a speed
of 37 m/s to a football initially at rest.
If the football has a mass of 0.41 kg and the
time of contact with the ball is 0.012 s, what
is the force exerted by the ball on the kicker’s
Answer in units of N.
The Attempt at a Solution
F= .41 * (37/.012) = 1264.166667 N
Answer was wrong, wouldn't this obey newtons third law?
Or am I overlooking something obvious??? Please help!
