Re: Secondary School Science

Putting this in a formula, the force needed to move the ball the distance of 5m would be a force equal to the weight of the ball . Force is mg. F = mg = (1kg) (10m/s2) = 10N W = 10N (5m) = 50J But I thought the force needed to move the ball has to be an external force applied to the ball which is g...
