Physics of Baseball: Full swings

(music) Jahred Adelman (Assistant Professor, Physics):
According to Newton’s second law, the more force that is applied to the ball, the more
it will accelerate. That’s why hitters try to take full swings when trying to hit a home-run.
It is also why they try to apply as little force as possible when trying to drop-down
a bunt. (music)
