See, in 4 sec. 55. A circket ball, of mass 180 gm. /sec , is hit in such a way that it returns with* the same speed in the direction just opposite to the original one. Find the change of velocity produced and assuming the blow to last 0-02 sec. calculate the average force with which the blow is struck. Hint: To find the change in velocity consider the proper algebraic signs from the directions of velocities- 56 MECHANICS 56.
