Step 1

1 of 2We have a baseball with a mass of $0.15\:\text{kg}$ and a bat strikes it with the force of $6\:\text{N}$. Acceleration of the ball is calculated from the equation for Newton's second law:

$\begin{aligned} F&=m\cdot a\Rightarrow a=\frac{F}{m}\\ a&=\frac{6\:\text{N}}{0.15\:\text{kg}}=\boxed{40\:\frac{\text{m}}{\text{s}^2}} \end{aligned}$
