Does anyone know what type of collision occurs when a tennis ball hits a racket. Also predict the motion after the collision.
I talked about how elastic collision is shown when a ball hits a racket and bounces off of it.
but she said I was wrong. She didn't tell me why I was wrong but she’s making me redo it.
I have no idea what the correct answer is. Can someone please help me

From Google:
Image result for explain why a tennis ball struck by a racquet is inelastic
A tennis ball is relatively inelastic compared to a the strings of a tennis racquet. As a result, tennis balls lose energy to dissipative forces when they bounce due to friction between the ball and the court and deforming of the tennis ball itself. 👍
