significance And Use:

This test method offers a laboratory means to measure the inertial properties of bats, specifically weight, balance point, center of percussion, and MOI, in support of other test methods including... View More

scope:

1.1 Method for determining the moment of inertia (MOI), the center of percussion (COP), and the balance point (BP) of baseball and softball bats. These physical properties are used in Test Method F1881, Test Method F1890, and Test Methods F2219.

1.2 The MOI, COP, and BP are measured in the laboratory on test equipment meeting the requirements defined in this test method.

1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
