"Suppose you had misbehaved and your mother said she was going to take a paddle to you. So that this will be a learning experience for you, your mother decides to let you choose which paddle will be used.
Which paddle would you choose to keep down the amount of kinetic energy transferred from the paddle to you? Now you have found that mass and velocity can explain kinetic energy.
Mass Speed of Swing
Paddle 1 .5 kg .30 m/sec
Paddle 2 1.0 .15 m/sec" less
Having zero knowledge of physics, I don't know the answer. Twice the mass, swing half as fast, a toss up. Talk about learning a lesson. Thanks Mom.
The shoes are a turn off to me, but she has quite a paddle collection. Love the colors.
