A tennis ball is traveling North towards a tennis racket with kinetic energy equal to 5 J. After contact with the racket, the tennis ball travels South, again with kinetic energy equal to 5 J. During this process, the change in kinetic energy is
a) 10 J
b) 0 J
c) 5 J
d) There is not enough information to answer this question.
