The magnitude of force of the ping-pong ball on the bowling ball , = 3.5 N

Explanation:

Given;

mass of the bowling ball, = 5.4 kg

mass of the ping-pong ball, = 2.7 g = 0.0027 kg

magnitude of force of the bowling ball, = 3.5 N

let the magnitude of force of ping-pong ball = Apply Newton’s third law of motion; action and reaction are equal and opposite. The force of the ping-pong ball on the bowling ball is equal to that of the bowling ball on ping-pong ball, but in opposite direction.

Thus, the magnitude of force of the ping-pong ball on the bowling ball , = 3.5 N
