A tennis player hits a 1.45 kg tennis ball with a racket of mass 2.5 kg. If he hits the ball with a velocity of 7.5 m/s and then stops, what impulse did he imply on the ball? What is the ball’s velocity?
Here is answer:
Since, impulse=change in momentum
Change in momentum =m*(Vf-Vi) = 2.5*7.5=18.75 kg m/s
Hence impulse on ball = impulse on racket = 18.75 kg
Velocity = momentum/mass = 18.75/1.45 = 12.93 m/s Ans
