hey again all!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When given the following information, what equation do you use to solve this and should the answer be around .02 N?

A superball (very bouncy) of mass .05 Kg is dropped onto a table top. Its speed as it hits the table top is 6.0 m/s. It bounces off the table and rises to the same height from which it fell. If the superball was in contact with the table for 30 ms (What is ms? is it a typo? i had trouble figuring that out too), calculate the average net force (magnitude and direction) exerted on the ball during its collision with the table. Show your work. (hint: calculate the change in momentum caused by its collision with the table.)

For this problem, i said (with the given values):

F = 0.5 Kg (6.0 - 6.0) / 30 ms? F = 0.02 N

Is this correct? is it even int he right ballpark? Please help me and leave me any advice you can

Thank you
