Best Answer

An object with less mass will have a greater speed when the same amount of energy is expended into it. Thus, a Baseball will be going much faster than a softball at the time it is thrown. For the same angle of launch, an object will go further when it has a higher velocity (a fairly trivial and simple fact).

Additionally, an object with greater surface area is slowed much quicker than one with less surface area. The baseball experiences less drag at the same speed than the softabll; while it is travelling faster and experiences greater drag as a result, it will also go further before being remotely near to the speed of the softball.

Does a baseball go further then a softball when hit?

Beacuse a softball is harder, so a baseball is bouncier, and thus it goes farther.


Why does a baseball go farther than a softball?

It is smaller, harder, and has less wind resistance.


Does microwaving softball make it go farther?

yea it does make it go farther


Does a baseball go further than a softball when hit by a metal bat?

When hitting a softball you can hear the tink off of the bat. When you hit a baseball you hear kind of a slap and therefore when you hit a baseball goes farther.


What is a hypothsis for the question what goes farther a baseball or a softball?

My hypothesis is that the baseball will indeed go farther. To explain why well because it is smaller so it will gain more speed. While a softball is big it will not gain as much speed but could be hit far as well. thank you.


Does freezing a softball make it go farther?

Yes it does. Will a hard compression ball go farther than a softer one? The harder the ball the farther it will travel.


Does the weight of the softball and the baseball effect the speed?

Well if you throw a bowling ball and a golf ball, which is gonna go faster?


When hit by a boy with a bat wich goes father softball or baseball?

It depends on which bat you use. If you use a softball bat, a baseball will go farther. If you use a baseball bat, a baseball will also go farther. Baseballs are generally considered a "live" ball. It's hot off the bat. This is why major leaguers use wood bats. The "dead"-ness of their bats slow the ball down a little. So A Softball is generally considered a "dead" ball. Softball players use bats that are "hot." In order to increase the speed of the ball off the bat. So when you pair a hot bat with a hot ball, (a baseball and softball bat) it will damage your bat (and is not recommended to try), but it will go farther. Also, a softball is larger. Based on the laws of aerodynamics, a baseball picks up less wind-resistance, and thus travels at a faster rate and farther on the fly. Therefore, a baseball will travel farther. Think of the proportions of a field. Baseball fields are larger because of how far and hard the ball travels through the air. Softball fields are smaller because the softballs are bigger and travel more difficultly through the air. It depends on which bat you use. If you use a softball bat, a baseball will go farther.

How is softball related to science?

because when the player hits the ball of the bat the inertia on the ball will go out farther.


Does a baseball or a softball goes further if you hit it from the same distance?

no, thethe gravity of a baseball is bigger than a softball's. so baseball has more friction than softball. hence, if you hit both of them from the same speed ,baseball will go further than softball.


Does the size of a softball effect the distance it travels?

Possibly, because of the weight. But if you throw with the same arm speed for each ball, (different sizes) then the smaller, lighter one will most likely go farther. Try it on an experiment


Does a baseball go farther when hit by a wood or metal bat?

a metal bat yes a metal will go farther


What is harder to throw- a baseball or a softball?

it depends on the type of throw you have. most boys prefer the baseball because it has less mass so it can go farther, yet it is more compacted so it it is heavier. The soft ball really isn't soft.. trust me ive been hit with it. But it it more spacious and it seems hollow inside meaning there is a lighter material inside. This means the softball is lighter but it is bigger in diamoter than the baseball so it catches more oncoming air, there for making it not go as far... also it sometimes is way to big for those tiny hands. through close consideration most people would have to come to the conclusion that a soft ball is harder to throw. -Sierra Jones :)

You can do it on if a aluminum or a wooden bat makes the ball go the farther distance! :) That got me an A.
