Best Answer

The answer is that the mass of the Basketball is larger than the mass of the Baseball. If you throw both balls with the same force, the speed of the baseball will be greater. Acceleration is larger when the speed of an object changes more quickly. The same net force causes the baseball's acceleration to be greater than the basketball's acceleration. If the net force is the same, the acceleration of an object decreases as the mass of an object increases. If you lift with the same force, an empty backpack speeds up more quickly than one that's full.

Is softball harder than baseball?

Softball is probably harder. Despite the name, a softball is harder than a baseball, and heavier (therefore harder to hit very far). Because of this, the batter must run to the base quicker as the ball will be closer. Plus, in fastpitch softball, the pitches can be as fast (or faster)than baseball pitches.

What is harder to hit in baseball when you throw over hand or throw under?

Even though I'm a baseball player, it is harder to hit it under hand when the pitches are thrown at equal reaction times. -When the softball is thrown under hand, its harder to adjust because the ball rises. Its more natural to move your arms down than to come up. Having experience in fast-pitch, rise ball usually gets the job done :]
