I have the following question, I have no relation to the study of Physics in any way, but the question has been teasing me for some time. Please accept my poor physical terminology. Here we go...
When a solid ball is thrown in a given angle with sufficient force, that ball will move in a some path. The ball will move until the energy passed to it is no longer effective against other forces affecting its movement.
I have the following questions about this scenario:
- Where does the 'solid' ball stores the force that was exerted on it?
- In what form is that energy stored?
- We pass force to the ball when it is hit; a quantity with a direction; to the ball, so where is the initial direction stored when the ball is hit?
Edit: Any web reference readable by an armature is highly appreciated.
