A 0.226 kg baseball is thrown with a
speed of 10.9 m/s. It is hit straight back at
the pitcher with a final speed of 9.65 m/s.
a) What is the magnitude of the impulse delivered to the ball?Answer in units of kg ·m/s.

b) Find the average force exerted by the bat on
the ball if the two are in contact for 0.00161s.
Answer in units of N.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

(a) impulse = mass* change in velocity

                   = 0.226*(10.9 -9.65)

                   = 0.2825kg.m/sec

(b) Force = impulse/time

               = 0.2825/0.00161

               = 175.47 N 

It will be retarding force as final velocity is less than initial velocity.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
