Yes, the weight of a ball can have an impact on how far it is thrown. A heavier ball requires more force to throw, which can affect the distance it travels. However, other factors like the thrower's technique and strength also play a role in determining how far the ball is thrown.

### How does the weight of the ball affect how far it can be thrown?

The weight of the ball affects how far it can be thrown by influencing the force applied during the throw. A heavier ball requires more force to throw, potentially resulting in a shorter distance due to increased resistance. Conversely, a lighter ball may be easier to throw with higher velocity, potentially covering a longer distance.

### How far can a ball be thrown?

The distance a ball can be thrown depends on factors such as the strength and technique of the person throwing it, the weight and aerodynamics of the ball, and environmental conditions like wind. Professional athletes have been known to throw a ball over 100 meters.

### How does the angle thrown affect the distance of a ball thrown?

yes it does the optimal ang

### In the absence of air resistance at what other angle will a thrown ball go the same distance as one thrown at an angle of 75 degrees?

The ball will travel the same distance if thrown at an angle of 15 degrees because the range of a projectile thrown at complementary angles (angles that add up to 90 degrees) are the same when air resistance is absent. Therefore, a ball thrown at 15 degrees will reach the same distance as one thrown at 75 degrees.

### What will be different for the ball thrown on the moon compared to a ball thrown the same way on earth?

the distance it travels before falling to the ground

### If a ball is thrown in space and on earth which ball will travel the greatest distance?

Naturally the ball in space will travel the longest distance as long as it does not bump into something along the way. Gravity on earth will cause the ball thrown to fall back to earth.
