A 0.25 kg ball moving at 13 m/s is struck by a bat and leaves the bat travelling at 19 m/s in the opposite direction to its initial direction. If contact between bat and ball lasts for 0.01 s what is the average force exerted by the bat on the ball?

2. Relevant equations

F= MA

3. The attempt at a solution

0.25X (13+19) but then what solution do i use for the time
