### 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.

### Does heat travel from cold objects to hot objects?

No, heat naturally flows from hot objects to cold objects. This is based on the second law of thermodynamics, which states that heat always moves in the direction that increases the entropy of a system.

### What direction does heat travel in?

Heat travels from Hot to cold. Not up!

### What are the difference between a hot and cold softball will it bounce different?

I did my science fair on this, there was no huge difference in the two. But when hitting the hot and cold ball you could definitely feel a difference. In my project i concluded the cold ones go further because they are harder

### Do baseballs fly farther when cold as opposed to hot?

i don't know if the temperature of the baseball itself affects it's flight time, but i have noticed that balls do fly futher when the -air- is hot, as opposed to cold

### What border does the jet stream travel between?

The jet stream travels between hot and cold air.

### Why is it hot in the tropics and cold in the polar regions?

it is hot in the tropics because it is near the equater. anything near the equater will be warmer. it is colder in the polar regions because it is farther from the equater near equater= warmer farther from equater= colder

### What makes sound travel slowly?

Tempurature makes sound travel slowly. If it is cold outside sound travels slowly and if it is hot outside sound travels quickly.

### How do you throw a baseball farther?

You build your fore arm and bicep muscles. A baseball travels farther in hot weather than in cold weather. Also, whenever you throw, whatever strength you have and whatever the weather is like, you'll get the maxumum distance out of your throw if you aim it 45 degrees above the horizon ... half-way up between level and straight up over your head.

### Why do you have to turn on cold water first to get hot water to work in shower?

On single handle shower valves, designed to let cold water first and turn handle farther to mix hot water to desired setting. If hot water turned on first, possibility of getting scalded. If seperate hot/cold handles for shower, shower valve needs work.

### Why does hot water float above cold?

Hot water can float above cold water because it is less dense. When water is heated, the molecules move farther apart, causing the hot water to be less dense than the cold water. This difference in density allows the hot water to float on top of the cold water.
