A baseball player hits a 82 mph fastball, sending it back at 120 mph. The ball has a mass of 150 g. The contact time is 0.001 s. What is the average force on the bat?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Okay, so I converted the miles to kilometres, and then used the equation F_avg*(t_2-t_1) = m_1*v_2 - m_2*-v_2, but I can't get the right answer. I even eliminated the negative sign and tried that, but it is still wrong. I can't see what else to add, so please help.
