Question

An astronaut hits a golf ball of mass m on the Moon, where there is no atmosphere and the acceleration due to gravity is g 6 , where g is the acceleration due to gravity on Earth. Assume that the golf club is in contact with the ball for a time t. Just after losing contact with the club, the ball has an initial speed v directed at an angle T above the horizontal. 6. What is the magnitude of the average force exerted by the club on the ball during contact

The magnitude of the average force exerted by the club on the ball during contact = mv/t

Explanation:

Impulse exerted on the ball = Momentum of the ball = mass * velocity = m*v

As we know,

m*v = Integration of F.dt with limits 0 to T

Ft = mv

F = mv/t

The magnitude of the average force exerted by the club on the ball during contact = mv/t
