How can I calculate a person's power when bowling? I am given the ball weight, time to swing, horizontal swing distance, time to roll down lane, and the lane's length.

    Divide the kinetic energy of the ball at release (1/2 m V^2)by the "time to swing" the ball.
    m = ball mass = (weight)/g
    V = (lane length)/(time to roll)

    There is some additional power associated with the bowler accelerating himself while swinging the ball.

    Thank you so much!
