Answer to Question #40442 in Mechanics | Relativity for Parhesh Kumar
when a golfer hits a ball is in contact with the ball for about 0.0005 seconds and the ball leaves the club with a speed of 70ms^-1. The mass of the ball is 46g. Determine the mean accelerating force.

Thank you very much for the answer. However I was confused that how the acceleration of a object be so great. The acceleration of the ball in 0.0005 seconds is 140km per hour. That kind of acceleration wouldn't be possible by human force, should it??
