How does the weight of a car affect the speed?

Weight wouldn't effect speed but it would effect how quick it would get up to speed.

Does the weight of a softball bat affect the distance the ball is hit?

It has some effect. The distance of the ball is a combination of the speed of swing, power of swing, timing, speed of ball, type of spin ball has, and bat weight. Therefore, it doesn't completely rely on bat weight.

If weight and size of a affect the speed of the softball then the ball will travel faster at what distance?

I dont know if this answers your question, But the bat does effect the distance and speed of the ball. Normally, the bigger bat you have (weight and inches) the ball will travel faster and farther. I play softball, and sometimes the coach will reccommend a bigger and heavier bat for the person.( X

Does the weight of a ball effect its speed?

Yes it will effect the speed depending on the direction.

Is bat speed or bat weight more important in sixteen inch softball?

its the weight of the bat the heavier the bat the further the ball will go the same in fast pitch softball

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.

What is faster a baseball pitch or softball pitch?

In terms of actual speed, a baseball pitch is much faster then a softball pitch. However, a softball pitcher throws from a shorter distance so it often looks just as fast if not faster then a baseball pitcher.

Does weight effect speed downhill?

No, weight does not effect speed downhill because the acceleration is only due to gravity, which does not depend on mass of the body if friction is not present.

How is the softball softer than a baseball?

The softball is not softer than a baseball despite the name. The name is a misnomer so you can just ignore it. When you get hit by a softball it hurts just as much as a baseball does. If the two are coming at the same speed I'd rather get hit by a baseball. That big green thing is bigger and heavier.

Does weight effect car speed?

Yes the more weight a car caries the more power it needs to maintain the same speed and its top speed is reduced as the weight increases

What is the difference between a baseball bat and a softball bat and can they be used in the different leagues?

A softball bat has a fatter barrel tot he bat, as well as a larger length-weight differential. Also, the length of the barrel is longer on a softball bat, as it starts lower on the bat. No they cannot be used in different leagues since softball bats have the larger length-weight differential (maximum in Major League Baseball is -3) and the barrel is too large (standard barrel is 2 3/4 ")AnswerBaseball bat barrels are usually fatter in diameter, heavier and have adifferent COR value (this determines the speed the ball rebounds off the bat) the balls rebound is slower for a softball bat.

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.

What is the effect of the weight of the wheel of the bicycle to its speed?

It really does not have an effect on the maximum speed, but due to inertia, it does inhibit [slow down] changes [acceleration or deceleration] in speed.

How does the speed of the bike affect its weight?

The speed of the bike has no effect on its weight. Weight = mass in kg x acceleration due to gravity, 9.8m/s2 on the earth.

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

What is the effect of weight on stalling speed?

Extra weight (for example, carrying more cargo) increases the stalling speed, and a lower weight (e.g. minimum fuel) reduces it.

Which is the harder ball a baseball or a softball?

WELL IF YOU WATCH SPORT SCIENCE THAN IT TELLS YOU THAT SOFTBALL IS HARDER THAN BASEBALL. JENNIE FINCH BROKE BULLET PROOF GLASS BUT THE BASEBALL JUST BOUNCED OFF THE GLASS. The softball is not harder than a baseball it may be bigger but the softball is not that hard! i play softball and i know that a softball is not harder than a baseball because i got hit with a softball and it didn't hurt as much as the baseball.....and the people who were pitching pitched the exact same speed! so there u have it a baseball IS HARDER than a softball!!!! Yes it is a fact that baseballs are harder than softballs because they are wound tighter. It may be a smaller ball but it is solid. softballs are rubber with string wrapped around it so they fly almost 200 ft less than a baseball will.

Which is harder to hit baseball or softball?

It is harder to hit a softball thrown from a perfesional softball player than it is to hit a baseball thrown from a major leager. The reason is the angle of the pitch (softball has more of an angle there for it is harder to hit) and the quickness/speed( softball mounds are closer to the plate and a softball, lets say from jenny finch, can be thrown at upwards of 68 mph; therefor it gets to the plate quiker than a 90 mph baseball pitch). IF you think what I wrote isn't true then google SPORTS SCIENCE BASEBALL VS. SOFTBALL. you will see (its a video) what I said is true,

Why does a baseball have more speed then a softball?

Because it's harder and smaller and will therefore have less wind resistance when thrown.

Does bat speed help you hit a softball farther?

Generally, yes - or at lest to a greater extent than it does in baseball. Physically, the harder you hit the ball (mostly speed of the bat) the farther it will travel. In softball, the speed of the incoming ball really doesn't vary all that much between fast pich and slow pitch. In baseball, the speed of the incoming ball - if it's a fast ball especially - has a great bearing on how far the ball will travel. So if the bat speed is good in either sport, in softball the hit will travel farther. In baseball, with the right pitch, the hit will travel much farther.

How do you increase the speed of the baseball pitch?

Let go the right way and swing your arm around fast. This also goes for softball.

What is the slowest ball thrown in Softball?

The slowest softball pitch is the change-up. It is used to trick the batter into swinging early. When pitchers have a good change up it can be used quite often with the same effect each time. Pitches can also be thrown off-speed, like an off-speed curve ball.

Is softball a good type of exercises?

softball is good exercise because it helps with speed, agility, power, and wits
