How far will the GOLF BALL travel??? I'm a business major, and was hoping that a few of the geniuses here could help me solve a problem! If a golf club was afixed to the front of a train (moving 100mph & assuming no loss of compression on the part of the train), and struck a stationary golf ball (with a C.O.R. of 70%) how far would the ball travel??? I've received several different answers ranging from it wouldn't leave the golf clubhead to 200 yards. I'd appreciate any help on the subject, and possibly how the problem is solved. I am reasonably sure conservation of momentum and kinetic energy are involved, but just don't know how to properly use the variables. Thanks in advance to anyone interested!
