A 64.9 g ball moving to the right at 11.1 m/s is struck by a bat causing it to move to the left with a speed of [y] m/s. If the bat and ball are in contact for 0.01683 s, what is the average force in N exerted by the ball on the bat?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Ok for this question Im getting -42.8, but thats wrong. First I find the impulse by using the formula p=mV and then I find the force by using the formula F=P/t.
