The gravitational force on a baseball is -Fgj(with a ^ over the j) A pitcher throws the baseball with velocity vi (with a ^ over the i) by uniformly accelerating it straight forward horizontally for a time interval change of t = t-0 =t. If the ball starts from rest, through what distance does it accelerate before its release and what force does the pitcher exert on the ball?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 5:44 pm ad1c9bdddf
v = u + a*t
=> v = 0 + a*t
=> a = v/t
v^2 = u^2 + 2*a*s
=> v^2 = 0(initially rest) + 2*(v/t)*s
The solution shows the formula and workings to arrive at the answer.
