No, you do not have to use as much force if you accelerate the ball over a longer distance. This means you are slowing it at a lower rate, but take long enough for the slowing to make a difference.

Do You need the Sam amount of force to throw a basketball 3 meters as you need to throw a golf ball 3 meters?

No you do not need the same amount of force to throw a basketball 3 meters as you would need to throw a golf ball 3 meters. The amount of force required to throw a basketball 3 meters depends on several factors: The weight of the ball: Basketballs are much heavier than golf balls. The size of the ball: Basketballs are much larger than golf balls. The amount of air resistance: Basketballs are much more aerodynamic than golf balls.Therefore you would need to generate more force to throw a basketball 3 meters than you would to throw a golf ball 3 meters.

Why does a tennis ball go far if you throw it?

When you throw the tennis ball, it flies for a distance before dropping down because when you throw the tennis ball, you use force, which is transferred to the tennis ball, which then converts to kinetic energy (movement energy), to allow the tennis ball to go far.

Could you give an example about 'an instance where you see more mass causes less acceleration when there is a constant force?

A baseball player can throw a baseball 90 m.p.h. What if you asked him to throw a bowling ball? It doesn't go nearly as fast or as far. The acceleration is much less, not because the baseball player is suddenly applying less force, but because the object he is applying the force to has much greater mass.

Which travels faster-a baseball that is thrown or a baseball that is hit with a bat?

There are a multitude of variable that need to be taken insto consideration. For each, How much force is being put into the swing or throw?? For The batted ball, it depends of the angle of which it strikes the bat. For the thrown, If there is the same force exerted on the ball as the batted ball, it will have half of the velocity. But, all variables considered, a typical batted ball travels with more force and velocity (Speed) than one thrown.

How much force would it require to roll and catch a soccer ball?

Doc. Newton tells us in his second law thatF=maor force equals mass times acceleration where the mass is Kilograms, the acceleration is meters/second and force is in Newtons.Measure the mass of the soccerball, guestimate the acceleration of the ball (change in speed divided by the elapsed time) and multiply them. Bingo, force.
