1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 150-g baseball pitched at a speed of 40 m/s is hit straight back to the pitches at a speed of 60 m/s. If the bat is in contact with the baseball for 5 ms calculate the magnitude of the average force exerted by the bat on the baseball. 2. Relevant equations Favg = delta p/ delta t 3. The attempt at a solution delta p = m (Vf-Vi) = 0.150(60-40) = 3 Favg = 3/0.005 = 3 however the answer is 3000N, can anyone clarify where I made the mistake?
