Asked Jan 30, 2020

An amateur golfer swings a golf club, striking a golf ball that has a mass of 55.0 g. The club is in contact with the ball for only 0.00390 s. After the collision, the ball leaves the club at a speed of 36.0 m/s. What is the magnitude of the average force (in N) exerted on the ball by the club?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given information:

The mass of the ball (m) = 55.0 g = 0.055 g

The initial velocity of the golf ball is (u) = 0 m/s

The final velocity of...
