    In a slow-pitch softball game, a 0.200 kg softball crossed the plate at 20.00 m/s at an angle of 35.0° below the horizontal. The batter hits the ball toward center field, giving it a velocity of 40.0 m/s at 30.0° above the horizontal.

    (a) Determine the impulse delivered to the ball.

    (b) If the force on the ball increases linearly for 4.00 ms, holds constant for 20.0 ms, then decreases to zero linearly in another 4.00 ms, what is the maximum force on the ball?
