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