A baseball pitcher delivers a fastball that crosses the plate with an angle of 7.89 degrees relative to the horizontal and a speed of 87.5 mph. The ball (mass 0.145 kg) is hit back over the head of the pitcher at an angle of 38.03 degrees with respect to the horizontal and a speed of 105.5 mph. What is the magnitude of the impulse received by the ball?
