f a 57.0 g tennis ball is traveling horizontally at 72.0 m/s (which does occur), and a 55.0 { kg} tennis player leaps vertically upward and hits the ball, causing it to travel at 48.0 m/s in the reverse direction, how fast will her center of mass be moving horizontally just after hitting the ball?

    Use the law of conservation of linear momentum. The change in the ball's momentum, which is 0.057 kg*(72+48 m/s), is equal and opposite to the change in player's momentum.
