A catcher "gives" with a baseball when catching it.
If the baseball exerts a force of 462 N on the glove such that the glove is displaced 11.9 cm, how much work is done by the ball? answer in units of J.

The work done is the product of force and the distance the glove displaced..
The force is 462N.The distance the force displaced the glove is
1Joule = 1Newton force acting for a distance of 1 meter = 1N m
Therefore, the work done inthe displacement of the glove=
The work done is given by the formula:
Work done = Force*Displacement
Given: Force = 462 N, and Displacement = 11.9 cm = 0.119 m
Work done = 462*0.119 = 54.978 J
Work done by ball is 54.978 J
