It is the same force but it is used more efficiently because the strings of the racket are put under tension like springs at the moment of hitting the ball, which with the ball's natural elasticity allows more energy to be transferred to the ball, making it go faster.

What force is exerted on the racket by a hit tennis ball?

There are two main forces acting on the racket from the tennis ball. The first is the force that the tennis ball exerts due to its velocity. The second is the reaction force resulting from the force that the racket exerts on the ball.

What force is responsible for a tennis ball moving forward after it gets hit by a tennis racket?

The ball keeps moving forward because of its momentum, which is not a force.

How is tennis related to newton third law of motion?

Newtons third law of motion states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. So when the tennis ball hits the racket, the racket exerts a force on the tennis ball, sending it back over the net.

If you hit a tennis ball with the tennis racket which has more force?

Accordig to one of Newton's laws, the force is equal because objects exert equal and opposite force on one another. This is why if you punch a brick wall, your hand will probably hurt. You are hitting the brick wall and it is "hitting" you back with the same amount of force.

How is newton's laws of motion apply to tennis?

newton's laws of motion apply to tennis because of the 3 law of motion. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. So when the ball hits the racket the force from the racket makes the ball move forward.Also the second law applies because the law is an object in motion will tend to stay in motion until an outside force acts upon it. So when the player hits the ball gravity is putting a force on the ball which brings the ball to the ground. If gravity didn't exist then the ball would go on forever.

What is an example of force in tennis?

When our bodies (shoes) make contact with the tennis court. We apply a force to that surface.

What causes things to fall to the ground at different speed?

Gravitational force of attraction....

How is gravity and friction different?

Gravity and friction is different because gravity is the force of something thats going downward and friction is the force that is being pushed if touching the ground. For example, if you was to go skating the friction is the force that you applied between the skates and the ground.

What force slows down the tennis ball on a roller coaster?

The limiting frictional force is the force that slows down the tennis ball on the roller coaster.

Which tennis ball bounces higher a wet tennis ball or a dry tennis ball?

The dry tennis ball will bounce higher, if you use the same amount of force, the wet tennis ball will slide a bit when it hits the ground and bounce lower. In short, the weight of the water will make the tennis ball heavier, with the weight of the water keeping it from bouncing as high.

What is the duration of Ground Force?

The duration of Ground Force is 1800.0 seconds.

Who is the top ranking badminton player and what kind of racket do they use?

Tennis ball have momentum?

Momentum is calculated by taking the product of mass times velocity. Thus, a moving tennis ball would have a nonzero momentum. However, since a tennis ball has a relatively small mass, it would need to have a high velocity in order to have a large value for its momentum. Since velocity is a vector (having both a magnitude and a direction), momentum is also a vector. When a tennis player hits a tennis ball with his racket, he imparts a force onto the tennis ball, which changes the direction of its momentum to return it over the net. (The value for this change in momentum is called impulse, which is equal to the product of the force applied and the time for which it is applied.)

Why does the tennis ball bounce best on a tennis racquet?

A tennis ball, when impacted, dissipates about 45% of the energy applied to it. This means that it only absorbs and returns 55% of that energy. That is why in the test standard for tennis balls, dropping it from 100 inches, it only rebounds 53 to 58 inches. It is returning that much energy. The strings of the racket, however, return 90% of the energy they are impacted with. So, when the tennis ball hits the strings and they stretch (absorb the energy), they will return 90% of that force in the return of the ball. When a ball hits strings with a higher tension, the force is exerted on the ball, instead of the strings, and the energy return is closer to the 55% range.

Is it possible to have force in the absence of a motion?

Yes, anything on the surface of the planet which is at rest exerts a force on the ground and the ground exerts a force on it.

When you roll a tennis ball on grass what forces act on the tennis ball?

You get frictional force. That is because when the tennis ball furr and the grass rubs together you et friction.
