A 60 g tennis ball with an initial speed of 32 m/s hits a wall and rebounds with the same speed.
The figure shows the force of the wall on the ball during the collision. What is the value of F_max, the maximum value of the contact force during the collision?

You need to evaluate the momentum before and after collision such that:
`p_1 = 60*10^-3*32 = 1.92`
`p_2 = 60*10^-3*(-32) = -1.92`
You need to evaluate the change in momentum `Delta p` such that:
`Delta p = p_1 - p_2 =...
