A .065-kg tennis ball moving to the right with a speed of 15 m/s is stuck by a tennis racket, causing it to move to the left with a speed of 15 m/s. If the ball remains in contact with the racket for 0.020s, what is the magnitude of the average force experienced by the ball?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F=mv/t I think that's the equation to use.

So if I plug in 0.065 for mass 15 m/s for velocity and .020s for time I would get 48.75 N but that's not an answer choice.
