"At least 502 official at bats are needed to qualify for a batting title. MLB uses a calculation of (number of games * 3.1) to determine the number. Since a full major season consists of 162 games, 162 multiplied by 3.1 equals 502."
This is incorrect. MLB requires this many Plate Appearances to qualify, not at bats. A player could theoretically go 1-1, then get 501 walks, hit by pitches, and sacrifices to qualify.
The correct answer for minimum AT BATS, to qualify: is 1.
Even taking aside the semantics of PAs vs ABs, a player can still win the batting title with fewer than 502 PAs. If his average is high enough, that theoretically adding on extra outs till he would reach 502 and STILL be highest, he can still win it. [Or any other PA based stat like OBP, SLG, OPS]

A batting average of .420 refers to getting a base hit in 42% of your at bats. So you would need 42 hits for every hundred at bats. No Major League Baseball player has hit this high since 1924, when Rogers Hornsby hit .424.

Yes. Aluminum and other synthetic bats are not allowed in Major League Baseball.
Somebody batting a thousand had a base hit in each of his or her at bats. Baseball statistics that call themselves percentages are generally out of 1,000, not 100. Batting average is the number of hits per thousand at bats. So somebody batting three hundred has 300 hits per 1,000 at bats, and somebody batting 1,000 has 1,000 hits per thousand at bats. Since 1941 no Major League Baseball player has ever hit over 400 in a full season.
