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?
The average force is a measure of the overall amount of force applied to an object over a certain period of time. It is calculated by dividing the total force by the duration of the time interval.
Average force takes into account the total force applied to an object over a period of time, while instantaneous force only measures the force at a specific moment in time.
To calculate average force, you would need to know the total force applied to the object and the time interval over which the force was applied. Divide the total force by the time interval to get the average force.
Knowing the average force on a tennis ball can help us understand the impact of the ball on different surfaces and how much force is needed to return the ball. It can also help in determining the durability of the ball and its potential for causing injury.
The average force on a tennis ball can be affected by factors such as the speed and angle of impact, the surface of the ball and the surface it bounces off of, and the air resistance. The type and condition of the ball, as well as the strength and technique of the player, can also play a role in the average force applied.
