A 0.180 kg baseball, traveling 32.0 m/s, strikes the catcher's mitt, which recoils 13.0 cm in bringing the ball to rest. What was the average force (in newtons) applied by the ball to the mitt?

• physics -

Kinetic energy loss equals work done pushing the mitt. Therefore,

Force = MV^2/(2X)

• physics -

I was just wondering if you just square v and also what do you put in for x?

• physics -

yes, V gets squared. X = 0.13 m
The force will be in Newtons.
