Homework Help: What is the average force on the tennis ball?

  1. Mar 6, 2008 #1
    A tennis ball may leave the racket of a top player on the serve with a speed of 62.0 m/s. If the ball's mass is 0.0600 kg and it is in contact with the racket for 0.0200 s, what is the average force on the ball?

    You must deduce the average force from the average acceleration (newton'S 2 law)

    if the ball went from 0 to 62m/s in 0.0200 s, then what is the average accel?

    btw - you're in the wrong forum. This is the math forum and yours is a physics question. try "Introductory physics" next time.
