Best Answer

In 18 U Gold softball and collegiate softball, the distance from the plate to the pitching mound is 43 feet. This is because the pitchers at these levels throw much faster than the pitchers in the lower levels. In high school at 14U - 18U the pitching distance is 40 feet. Notice there is a difference between 18U and 18U Gold level.

How does distance and time affect the speed from object?

Distance and time do not, in general, affect the speed. Speed, however, can affect distance or time. Distance is directly proportional to speed, time is inversely proportional.

How do distance and time affect speed?

Because speed = distance/time

How does distance and time affect the speed at which something travels?

Because distance/time = the speed at which something travels.

How does time affect average speed when distance is a constant?

Time is inversely proportional to speed.

How would decreasing the time it takes you to run a certain distance affect speed?

As the time taken decreases, the speed increases since speed = distance ÷ time

How does average speed affect a total distance?

increase av speed and total dist. increases

How would decreasing the time it takes you to run a certain distance affect your speed?

It would increase your speed. Speed = distance / time so if you decrease the time whilst keeping the distance the same, distance/time increases.

How do you compare softball pitching speed to baseball pitching sped?

Speed is based on distance traveled in a given amount of time. Baseball uses a distance of 60 feet 6 inches from the pitching rubber to home where as softball is 43 feet. A ball that would cover 43 feet in 1/2 a second is traveling just over 58 mph while a ball covering 60 feet 6 inches in the same time is traveling 82.5 mph. You need to know 2 of the following 3 ; distance, speed, or time. If you know distance and time then the formula is speed=distance/time. If you know the speed and distance then use time=distance/speed, get that number then use previous formula and change distance to get comparison.
