n a baseball game, John swings a 1.2 kg bat and completes a home run. The swing took 0.47 s from the back of the swing until ball impact. The peak angular velocity of the bat was reached at the instant of ball impact, and it was equal to 32 rad.s−132 rad.s−1. The peak linear velocity of the bat at the center of gravity is equal to 15 m.s−115 m.s−1. Calculate the moment of inertia of the bat felt by the batter _______ kg.m^2

1

0.26

0.3

0.34
