A baseball player pops a pitch straight up. The ball (mass 200 g) was traveling horizontally at 35.0 m/s just before contact with the bat, and 20.0 m/s just after contact. Determine the direction and magnitude of the impulse delivered to the ball by the bat.
Answer to relevant QuestionsA 60-kg astronaut floating at rest in space outside a space capsule throws his 0.50-kg hammer such that it moves with a speed of relative to the capsule. What happens to the astronaut? Consider two string-suspended balls, both with a mass of 0.15 kg. (Similar to the arrangement in Fig. 6.15, but with only two balls.) One ball is pulled back in line with the other so it has a vertical height of 10 cm, and ...A 1600-kg (empty) truck rolls with a speed of 2.5 m/s under a loading bin, and a mass of 3500 kg is deposited into the truck. What is the truck’s speed immediately after loading? A ballistic pendulum is a device used to measure the velocity of a projectile— for example, the muzzle velocity of a rifle bullet. The projectile is shot horizontally into, and becomes embedded in, the bob of a pendulum, ...A 1.0-kg object moving at 10 m/s collides with a stationary 2.0-kg object as shown in Fig. 6.37. If the collision is perfectly inelastic, how far along the inclined plane will the combined system travel? (Neglect friction.)
