A 6.0x10–2 kg tennis ball moves at a speed of 12 m/s. The ball is struck by a racket, causing it to rebound in
the opposite direction at a speed of 18 m/s. What is the magnitude of impulse?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given information:

Mass of the ball (m) = 6 × 10-2 kg

Initial velocity of the ball (u) = 12 m/s

Final velocity of the ball (v) = -18 m/s
