It is not uncommon during the service of a professional tennis player for the racket to exert an average force of 156.0 N on the ball. If the ball has a mass of 0.070 kg and is in contact with the strings of the racket for 0.030 s, what is the kinetic energy of the ball as it leaves the racket? Assume that the ball starts from rest. Assume that air resistance is negligible.

An archer puts a 0.25 kg arrow to the bowstring. An average force of 187 N is exerted to draw the string back 1.3 m. Assume that air resistance is negligible.

(a) Assuming that all the energy goes into the arrow, with what speed does the arrow leave the bow?
(b) If the arrow is shot straight up, how high does it rise?
