Bat Physics. The Sweet Spot - Welcome to X Bats

https://www.xbats.com/blog/bat-physics-the-sweet-spot.htm A baseball bat has three "sweet spots"; one of them is called its "center of percussion" (COP). That's physicist talk for the point where the ball's impact causes the smallest shock to your hands. If you hit a baseball closer to the bat's handle than to the center of percussion, you'll feel a slight force pushing the handle back into the palm of your top hand.…

http://baseball.physics.illinois.edu/CrossSweetSpotBat.pdf spot on a baseball bat. The sweet spot is an impact point, or a narrow impact zone, where the shock of the impact, felt by the hands, is reduced to such an extent that the batter is almost unaware of the collision. At other impact points, the impact may be felt as a painful sting or jarring of the hands, particularly if the impact occurs at a point well removed from the sweet spot.…

Baseball Bat Sweet Spot - Pennsylvania State University

https://www.acs.psu.edu/drussell/bats/bend-sweet.html There are many definitions for what constitutes the "Sweet Spot" on a baseball bat. From a player's viewpoint, the sweet spot is the place on the bat barrel where the contact between bat and ball results in the best hit - the ball leaves the bat with the greatest speed and the player's hands feel very little vibration from the impact.…

https://www.real-world-physics-problems.com/physics-of-hitting-a-baseball.html The "sweet spot" is a special point on the bat which minimizes stinging of the hands when the ball strikes there. Baseball players say that hitting the ball in this location "feels" the best, and results in the most solid hit. If the baseball strikes outside of the sweet spot a painful stinging sensation is felt in the hands, due to bat vibration.…

https://news.kettering.edu/news/physics-elusive-sweet-spot-unraveled The node is related to where the sweet spot is - where the bat does NOT bend or vibrate. If the bat vibrates when struck by the ball it is taking energy up, Russell said, which means the more energy the bat has, the less energy is transferred to the ball.…

The physics of baseball

http://www.physics.usyd.edu.au/~cross/baseball.html The sweet spot of a bat exists because bat vibrations are not excited significantly at that spot. The spot is close to the centre of percussion (COP) for a freely supported bat, so it was thought at one time that the sweet spot might be associated with the COP. However, the COP shifts a long way toward the handle when a batter holds the handle, and plays only a minor role in the feel of the bat for an impact ……
