Textbook Problem

High-speed stroboscopic photographs show that the head of a 2.00 × 102-g golf club is traveling at 55.0 m/s just before it strikes a 46.0-g golf ball at rest on a tee. After the collision, the club head travels (in the same direction) at 40.0 m/s. Find the speed of the golf ball just after impact.

To determine
Speed of the golf ball


Given Info: Mass of the club is mclub=200×103 kg , mass of the ball is mball=46.0×103 kg ,

Initial velocity of the club is (vclub )i=55.0m/s , final velocity of the club is (vclub)f=40.0m/s and Initial velocity of the ball is (vball)i=0 .

Apply conservation of momentum to club –ball system,


Substitute 200×103kg for mclub , 40.0 m/s for (vclub)f , 46.0×103 kg for mball , 55
