Just before it is struck by a racket, a tennis ball weighing 0.560 N has a velocity of (20.0i-4.0j) m/s. During the 3.00 ms that the racket and ball are in contact, the net force on the ball is constant and equal to (-380i+110j)N. What is the x-component of the impulse of the net force applied to the ball? What is the y-componen
