  1. Explanation:

    The impact between bat and ball is an extremely violent one, in which the bat imparts a huge force on the ball thereby causing it to change directions and gain speed. Consider a baseball weighing 5.125oz (mass = 0.145kg) which approaches the bat at a speed of 90mph (40.2m/s). After the collision with the bat, with a contact time of 0.7milliseconds (0.0007s)[1,2] the bat has a speed of 110mph (49.1m/s) in the opposite direction.
