(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A .145 kg pitched baseball moving at 35 m/s strikes a bat and is popped straight up (forming a 90 degree angle)to a height of 55.6 m before turning around. If the contact time is .50 seconds. calculate the average force on the ball during contact.

2. Relevant equations

p=mv

impulse=ft

m1v1+m2v2 = m1v1 prime +m2v2 prime

delta ft= delta mv

3. The attempt at a solution

I honestly have no idea but this is what i did

f=mv/t=.145(35 m/s)/.50 s= 10.15 N
