1. ## physics

A coach is hitting pop flies to the outfielders. If the baseball (mass = 145 g) stays in contact with the bat for 0.03 s and leaves the bat with a speed of 60 m/s, what is the average force acting on the ball?

impulse equation ...

$\displaystyle F_{avg} \Delta t = m \Delta v$

2000*0.145= 290n
thx
