# Question #1f1e2

##### 1 Answer

Let a cricket ball of mass **zero**.So change in momentum during

By Newton's second law the average force

So

#color(blue)(F=(mv)/(Deltat).....(1))#

Now let us see what the equation (1) tells us.

In this equation

So force **inversely proportional** to

So *while catching the fast moving cricket ball cricketer tries to lengthen the duration* *in order to lessen the retarding force*.

Because less retarding force creats less reaction on hand so that it gets less hurt and possibility of missing the catch for bouncing back from hand due to greater reactionary force is lessend.
