A Baseball is measured by its weight, and circumference. The circumference of a baseball is the length around it. The size of a Rawlings Official Major League Baseball game ball cannot be less than five ounces nor more than 5 ¼ ounces; not less than nine nor more than 9 ¼ inches in circumference.

How can you determine how fast a thrower can pitch a ball if all you have is a ball and a stopwatch?

Mark off and measure the distance of the throw. Time the throw with the stopwatch. This will give you the feet per second. If you want miles per hour take that and multiply by 0.68

A cricketer can throw a ball to a maximum horizontal distance of 100m .How much above the ground can the cricketer throw the same ball?


In the absence of air resistance at what other angle will a thrown ball go the same distance as one thrown at an angle of 75 degrees?

The answer is 45 degrees. If given the same velocity, and thrown at say...10 degrees, to the ground, then the distance it would travel is the same as the distance it would travel if it were thrown 80 degrees. Complementary angles end up at the same distance horizontally.

How does distance has no direction?

Because distance can be measured in any direction. For example, if I throw a ball -- it could travel a distance of 16 feet (5 metres). The direction I throw it depends which way I'm facing !

If you throw a ball forty-five degrees does that result in the maximum distance?

To put it shortly... yes.

Is work done when you throw a ball?

Yes, throwing the ball requires a force, and work is done when a force moves a mass over a distance.

What items can you measure in yard?

lengths - materials distance - foot ball field

What are some velocity experiments?

some typical experiments would be anything to do with an object moving in a particular direction at a set distance. So for example you could throw a tennis ball and time it from the second it was released from your hand to the second it stopped and measure the distance from where you threw the ball to where it stopped, then divide that distance by the time is took to stop there. Simply change the object moving for other experiments.

How do you measure a dropped ball's potential energy?

When a ball is dropped, it no longer has potential energy. Before it drops, you can calculate the potential energy (= mgh); to actually measure this, you would have to measure the force, and multiply that by the distance.

Does the different type of football affect how far it goes?

Yes, because if it is a small ball then you can grip it better therefore allowing you to throw it farther. If it is a college or high school ball you must have big hands to throw it a decent distance.

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.

How do you measure the speed of a cricket ball without a radar?

I guess use a high speed camera Time it and measure the distance travelled.
