Problem 4.6: Putted golf ball
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
The animation shows a putted golf ball of mass 0.050 kg as it rolls toward the hole. The putter hit the ball before t = 0 s and is no longer in contact with the ball (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds). Restart.
- What is the net force on the golf ball during the interval from t = 0 to t = 4.2 s?
- What is the force of the putter on the golf ball during this interval?
