Babe Ruth steps to the plate and casually points to left center field to indicate the location of his next home run. The mighty Babe holds his bat across his shoulder, with one hand holding the small end of the bat. The bat is horizontal, and the distance from the small end of the bat to the shoulder is 22.5 cm. If the bat has a mass of 1.10 kg and has a center of mass that is 67.0 cm from the small end of the bat, find the magnitude and direction of the force exerted by (a) the hand and (b) the shoulder.
Step 1 of 4
Here the objective is to determine the magnitude and direction of the force exerted on the bat by the hand and the shoulder of the person from the given parameters.
