Answer to Question #16218 in Mechanics | Relativity for Richard
Given: A racquetball must strike a wall and floor simultaneously to be classified as a "crotch shot". Assume: (1) the ball is perfectly round and not spinning, (2) the floor and wall are perfectly flat, smooth and perpendicular to each other. Can this happen only if the flight of the ball is at a 45 degree angle to both the floor and wall? In other words, is it possible to have a simultaneous hit of both surfaces at any other angle, e.g., 60 degrees, 22 degrees, etc. Would appreciate a diagram or formula proof, not just a Yes or No answer.
Hi Expert, so I wasn't able to try the new version because they closed of the submission portal. Oh well,
but I want to give you my sincerest thank you for helping me throughout this assignment! Honestly, you are an absolute legend! Your line by line explanation was superb and honestly helped me understand most of the concept I learnt during my semester better than my own lecturer! Thank you for consistently helping and being persistent with the versions!
You've honestly been the greatest help and I would have been so lost if it wasn't without your expertise!
So thank you once again!
