I am having problems with a couple of homework questions. IF anyone can help out that would be great.

Homework Statement



Neglect air resistance in this problem. Mark all that apply when answering each question.
Which forces should be included in the free body diagram for a baseball at the moment it is hit by the bat?

1. the force of gravity on the ball
2. the force of the glove on the bat
3. the force of the bat on the ball
4. the force of the ball on the bat
5. the force of gravity on the bat



Homework Equations



N/A


The Attempt at a Solution



I though the correct answer would be options 1, 3, 4, 5 because all these forces play a part in what is happening at the time when the ball is struck by the bat. My selections were incorrect though. Can anyone offer me any tips to correct the problem?

So we have to consider all forces that acts on the baseball not on the bat.
