►You are given the following data about a golf club hitting a stationary golf ball:
mass of club head
=
0.350 kg
mass of golf ball
=
0.046 kg
speed of club head before collision north =
38 m/s
speed of club head after collision north = 29 m/s
Calculate the following:
1. momentum of club head before collision _____________________
2. momentum of club head after collision
_____________________
3. momentum of golf ball before collision
_____________________
4. momentum of golf ball after collision
_____________________
5. speed of the golf ball after it is hit by the golf club
_____________________
6.
what is the direction of the ball if it were hit correctly?
