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

A ball is moving toward a batter at 32m/s and weighs 0.15kg. After the batter hits it goes 105.0m at an initial angle of 52 degrees. What is the magnitude of the impulse the ball receives in the collision with the bat, and what is the direction of the impulse?

[b2. Relevant equations[/b]

I=MV+MV'

X_{max}=(2V^{2}sin [tex]\phi[/tex] cos [tex]\phi[/tex])/g

3. The attempt at a solution

I am having trouble finding the initial velocity of the ball after the collision. I tried using the second equation and found the velocity to be 32m/s. Is it wrong to use that formula to find the original velocity?
