After uniformly accelerating his arm for 0.080 s, a pitcher releases a baseball of weight 1.38 N with a velocity of 29.4 m/s horizontally forward. Assume the entire direction of motion during the acceleration is horizontal. If the ball starts from rest, through what distance does the ball accelerate before its release? What force does the pitcher exert on the ball? Use: g = 9.81 m/s2. Check that your answer is dimensionally correct; that is, has the correct units.
The distance does the ball accelerate before its release is X = 1 . 1 7 m What... View the full answer
