the weight of a baseball is 5oz a normal bat in the mlb is 33 to 36in

Actually, I believe that a greater determinant of distance is bat speed. The greater the bat speed the further the ball will travel.

yes, because the heavier the bat is, the more weight you swing behind the ball and the further the baseball travels

Yes but it would go farther if you used a light weight bat because it is based on bat speed the faster you swing the bat the farther it goes.

it all depends on the person swinging the bat. if a strong person is swinging a heavy bat the ball will travel farther due to the larger mass of the bat.

Yes, as does, of course, the strength of the swing. Too heavy of a bat will result in a weaker swing. Every batter has their own specific bat mass that allows them to hit the ball further according to their swinging abilities. It can take quite a bit of time and investigation for a player to determine which bat is right for them.

A bat hitting a baseball is an elastic collision which means there is a transfer of momentum from the bat to the ball. Since momentum is equal to mass multiplied by velocity, a higher mass means more momentum. However, you also must consider that it is harder to swing a heavier bat and therefore it will travel slower and therefore have less momentum.

A baseball and a bat cost \$24. If the bat costs \$10 more than the baseball, what is the cost of the bat (in \$)?

The unit won't help you find the mass of the bat. To do that, you need some sort of a scale. Once you've found the mass, you can describe it in terms of any appropriate unit, such as 'poundmass' or 'kilogram'.

According to the video I saw made by Tim McCarver and a physics professor the center of mass is about 1.5" to 2" from the end of a wood bat. This fluctuates depending on the shape (turning model) of the bat. It's nearly 3" from the endcap on a typical high end aluminum bat.

how was the baseball bat originally invented

Baseball bats are typically measured in ounces. The weight of the bat depends on the skill level you play at (MLB players use heavier bats than Little Leaguers do.) So the mass of each bat will be different to everyone. However we do know that 1 ounce = 28.3495231 grams. So if you would like an estimation in grams, which mass a lot of times is measured with, you could multiply the amount of ounces the bat weighs by either 28 or 30.

A corked bat might help with hitting the ball a bit but because the mass of a corked bat is different then to a wooden bat that you would be hitting it with less mass witch means you won't be hitting that much home runs form a corked bat. plus the corked bat is illegal to use in professional baseball in America. so if you wanted more home runs don't use the corked bat.

Wood is an anisotropic material, meaning some parts of it are heavier than others. Wooden baseball bats thus have an uneven distribution of mass along the axis, which moves the center of mass away from the midpoint.

A bat is a stick required to hit a ball in a baseball game

a baseball bat is a "lever" in the way that the ball comes off the bat. When the baseball makes contact with the bat, the bat gives, or bends. What causes the ball to then travel is when the bat snaps back into a straight object. Thus, the bat is, in a way, a lever.
