A bungee jumper jumps from a high bridge 100 m above a river. How fast does he fall after he has covered 60 m after jumping from the bridge? (Ignore air resistance in the fall.)

A 0.5-kg baseball is pitched at 45 m/s and is struck by a bat and sent back toward the pitcher at -45 m/s. If the ball is in contact with the bat for 0.0025 seconds, how hard does the bat hit the ball? What forces act on the ball after the bat hits it?
