A 0.145 kg baseball pitched at 39.0 m/s is hit on a horizontal line drive straight back toward the pitcher at 52.0 m/s. If the contact time between bat and ball is 1.00\times10^{-3} s,calculate the average force between the bat and ball during contest.

This problem is really quite simple. All you need to do is use the Ft=mv equation.
First, you are looking for force so rewrite theequation solving for force:
F=mvt
Now v is 39.0 m/s- (-52.0 m/s) = 91 m/s.
52 is negative because the ball ends up traveling in the opposite direction after coming in contact with the ball.
Now just plug in the rest of the information and you get yours answer.
F=(0.145 kg)(91 ms)1×103 s=13195N

consider the velocity towards the pitcher as positive

m=mass of the baseball=0.145 kg

v_0 = initial velocity of the baseball = - 39 m/s

= final velocity of the baseball = 52 m/s

t = time of contact = 1.00×103 sec

= average force between bat and ball

Using impulse-change in momentum equation

Ft=m(vv0)

F(1×103)=(0.145)(52(39))

F=13195N

In a truck-loading station at a post office, a small 0.200-kg package is released from rest a point A on a track that is one quarter of a circle with radius 1.60 m.The size of the packageis much less than 1.60m, so the package can be treated at aparticle. It slides down the track and reaches point B with a speed of 4.80 m/s. From point B, it slides on a level surface a distanceof 3.00 m to point C, where is comes to rest. 
(a) What is the coefficient of kinetic friction on the horizontal surface? 
(b) How much work is done on the package by friction as it slides down the circular arc from A to B?
