Actually F=MA and as you don't have any acceleration assuming a steady speed during the flight (after acceleration by the bat), the formula you need is F=Mass x Velocity squared.
but determining outcome by experimentation or "the answer is... throw softballs at the cage to see if it holds up." sounds like more fun!
Thanks for the laugh.
1 Just how soft is a softball?
2 How heavy is it.
3 How fast is it.
4 Is it not the purpose of a guinea pig cage to keep soft things in not softballs out?
From 2&3 you can work out the energy that the cage needs to absorb to protect the camera.
If I recall force = mass x acceleration squared.
The mass of a softball is... let's say 8 ounces. The maximum speed at the 10 and under is maybe 40 miles per hour...
And so I need to convert from stupid American to metric...
Carry the two...
And the answer is... throw softballs at the cage to see if it holds up.
