Baseball -force and impulse- question
A pitcher throws a baseball to a catcher in a straight line, like any ordinary pitch. Assuming that the ball arrives to the catcher at the same speed as the pitch is thrown, which player ends up attaining a larger force, the pitcher or the catcher? And, which player ends up having the larger impulse on the ball?
Though there are no specific numbers used, the problem includes collision and momentum.
Perhaps F*t=P2-P1 could be used for demonstration
The Attempt at a Solution
I am sort of just confused by the problem. It seems easy, but maybe I am not understanding the principles of impulse. I believe that the catcher would acquire a greater force because the baseball would be accelerating negatively very quickly. But does this mean that the catcher also has a greater impulse?
