A soccer ball with mass 0.460 kg is initially moving with speed 2.20 m/s. A soccer player kicks the ball, exerting a constant force of magnitude 41.0 N in the same direction as the balls motion. Over what distance must the players foot be in contact with the ball to increase the balls speed to 6.00 m/s?
