A tennis ball has rolled its way down into a hole. This particular hole is extremely deep and has a sharp bend in the middle, making the ball impossible to retrieve by hand. The ground around the hole is made of hard clay, so digging the ball out isn’t an option. What could you use to get the ball out?

It’s so strong, it does not break,
It’s so powerful, it penetrates a lake,
Sometimes it’s weak as a twig left out in the sun,
It’s so wonderful it gives us the power to have fun.
What is it?
