    A baseball has mass 0.145.kg
    1) if the velocity of a pitched ball has magnitude 45m/s and the batted ball's velocity is 55m/s in the opposite direction, find the magnitude of the change in momentum of the ball and the impulse applied to it by the bat.
    b) If the ball remains in contact with the bat for 2.00ms, find the magnitude of the average force applied by the bat
