When you pull your arms back while catching a fast moving cricket ball the chances of hurting your hands are low. Explain this on the basis of Newton's law. Please don't give any website.

Dear student, This is based on Newton's second law of motion according to which force exerted by the body is directly proportional to change in momentum. When you pull your arms back while catching a fast moving cricket ball the chances of hurting your hands are low because in doing so, the fielder increases the time during which the high velocity of the moving ball descrease to zero. thus, the accleration of the ball is descreased and therefore the impact of catching the fast moving ball is also reduced. Thus the time increses during which the high velocity of the moving ball descrease to zero. thus, the accleration of the ball is descreased and therefore the impact of catching the fast moving ball is also reduced. HOPE THIS HELPS. REGARDS!!
