speed of baseball In MLB, the distance from the pitcher's mound to home plate is 60 1/2 feet. A baseball traveling at 100 mph is covering 146.7 feet every second. That means it takes under 1/2 of a second (0.412 seconds to be exact) for a 100 mph fastball to travel from the pitcher to the batter!

The distance from the pitcher's mound to home plate is 60.5 feet. If the ball would be released exactly from the pitcher's mound, it would take approximately 0.43 second…s. But, if you don't want to count that last part of the windup which takes place from the pitcher's mound until the ball is released from the hand, assuming that that distance is about 5 ft, then it takes approximately 0.4 seconds to reach home plate.

It takes 8 minutes, 31 seconds from launch to MECO (Main Engine Cut Off) for NASA's STS (Space Transportation System) fleet of Space Shuttles to achieve an initial elliptical …orbit velocity of about 17,500 mph at an altitude of approximately 69 statute miles. It is interesting to note that this velocity includes an acceleration of about 16,550 mph relative to the launch point at the Cape, with the rotation of the earth at Florida's latitude contributing about another 975 MPH. Further burns of the OMS (Orbital Manuevering System) main engines to round the orbit to it's usual 185 mile distance from earth's surface.
Treat units like variable in this equation d=rt t=d/r t=20/100 mi/(mi/h) t=20/100 h (miles cancel) t=1/5 h (simplify) 1/5 of one hour or 12 minutes
My fastest record is about 3 days.
At its closest, Saturn is about 800 million miles from earth. At 100 mph it would take about 910 years to cover such a distance.
First lets convert mph (miles per hour) to yard per hour 1 miles per hour = 1760 yard per hour so 10 miles per hour = 17600 yard per hour Now lets divide 100yards/17600ya…rd per hour 100/17600 = 0.00568 hour Lets convert hours to minutes 1 hour = 60 minutes 0.00568 x 60 = 0.3408 minutes lets convert minutes to seconds 1 minute = 60 seconds 0.3408 x 60 = 20.448 It takes 20.448 seconds to cover 100 yards at 10mph

About 10 seconds.
On an MLB field, it is 127.28 feet from home plate to 2nd base. An object traveling 75 MPH goes 110 feet in 1 second ((75 * 5280) / 3600) and 127.28 feet in 1.157 seconds.
About 0.55 seconds.
The Aventador can go 0-110mph in 6.8sec, so 109mph 6.5-6.7sec.
