Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Allen on Sunday, October 3, 2010 at 6:38pm.

If I take a glob of mud and throw it against a wall with the speed of V and stops in time T and than I take a ball and throw it and it hits the wall with speed V and leaves the wall a time T later at a speed of 0.5V and they both have same value and mass, which one involves a greater total force on the object.

I think it is the ball but to be honest I don't understand why-I'm thinking because it is pushed off the wall once it hits it? Newton's laws?
Could you give me some direction, please?
