If you reach your racquet over the net in the middle of a point before the ball has crossed the net, you lose the point. If the ball has crossed the net and when you return it your follow through goes over the net without touching it, it is good

No, you can not reach over the net in volleyball. You may get away with it once in a while if you've got a new not very expierenced referee. but 9 out of 10 times you will get caught.

### Can you hit the ball on the full in table tennis?

Generally, no. If you "volley" the ball (as they do in tennis), you would lose the point. The technical term is "obstruction" but what it refers to is hitting the ball before it bounces. If there's a chance that the ball might hit the table because it's still travelling towards it, your opponent would lose the point if he prevented it from doing so by hitting/volleying it on the full. But ... If the ball has already passed over the table and/or is travelling away from the table, your opponent wins the point whether he hits/volleys it or not. And also ... as well as hitting the ball with your racket, if you touch the ball with any part of your body or with anything you carry, the same rule applies.

### When a tennis player practice by hitting the ball against the wallwhich of newtons laws of motion is the player making use of?

When a tennis player practices by hitting a ball against a wall the player is making use of Newton's Third Law. According to Newton's Third Law, whenever one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts an equal and opposite force on the first object, These two forces are called action and reaction forces. Back to the question, the tennis player is making use of Newton's Third Law because when he is hitting a ball against the wall, he is exerting a force. However without the wall exerting an equal and opposite force on the ball, it would be impossible for the ball to bounce back and the player to continue hitting the ball against the wall which is why the player is making use of Newton's Third Law.
