Physics on table tennis

  1. Mar 21, 2009 #1
    Hi all!
    Its been a while since i post question but here i came t ask one.
    1.I am doing research on the physics of table tennis and i want to focuse only on the spining of the ball and the speed of the ball but i have some problem on the speed of the ball .the problem i have is what makes the table tennis ball to go faster (speed).i am thinking because the table tennis ball is small and also the ball doesn't have much friction and also they are playing with less air resistance.

    but this all look the same for ground tennis because still out side tennis has equvalent speed as table tennis.

    please give me some idea on the speed of table tennis.or where could i research.

    thank you .
