We calculate the force from the impulse.
In a baseball game, a batter hits the 0.150-kg ball straight back at the pitcher at 180 km/h.
If the ball is traveling at 160 km/h just before it reaches the bat, what is the magnitude of the average force exerted by the bat on it if the collision lasts 5.0 ms?
F = ?
