What would cause a beach ball to accelerate more, an elephant kick or a mouse kick?
An elephant kick, there is more force applied when the elephant kicks then when the mouse kicks. A mouse is small, and a elephant is huge, another thing is the mouse is smaller than the ball well the elephant is larger than the ball. The ball weighs more than the mouse and less the the elephant. All of this that I have told you means the when the elephant kicks the ball, it would accelerate faster and go further in a much shorter period of time.
