A soccer ball with mass 0.420 kg is initially moving with speed 2.00 m/s. A soccer player kicks the ball, exerting a constant force of magnitude 40.0 N in the same direction as the ball’s motion. Over what distance must the player’s foot be in contact with the ball to increase the ball’s speed to 6.00 m/s?

Solution 24E Introduction Mass and force of the ball is given, we can calculate acceleration from this information. We use this acceleration and given initial and final velocity, using the formula from dynamics we can calculate the distance. Step 1 The acceleration of the ball...
