## What is the speed of a ball being thrown?

Answer: 0 m/s. The instantaneous speed of any projectile at its maximum height is zero. Because gravity provides the same acceleration to the ball on the way up (slowing it down) as on the way down (speeding it up), the time to reach maximum altitude is the same as the time to return to its launch position.

**How do you measure throw speed?**

Multiply the speed of the baseball in feet per second by 0.682. This will convert the speed to miles per hour (mph). For example, a speed of 129 feet per second is equal to 129 x 0.682 = 88 mph. Calculate the speed of the baseball directly from its travel time in seconds.

### How long does it take for a ball to drop 1 meter?

So far I have: 9.8 m/s^2 (acceleration in free fall)/2 = 4.9 m/s (average speed over 1 second). So in one second the ball will have fallen 4.9 m. 1 m/4.9 m = (roughly) .

**What happens when you throw a ball in a moving car?**

When a person throws a ball up in a moving vehicle, say, a train, the ball does come straight back to thrower as though the train were at rest. So if the train moves with a constant velocity, the ball will exactly return to the thrower.

#### At what speed do you have to throw a ball upwards into the air in order for the ball to reach a maximum height of 15 meters and how long will the ball be in the air?

Question: A ball thrown vertically upward reaches a maximum height of 30 meters above the surface of Earth. At its maximum height, the speed of the ball is: Answer: 0 m/s. The instantaneous speed of any projectile at its maximum height is zero.

**How hard do you have to throw to throw 100 yards?**

To throw a football 100 yards a QB would have to throw the ball about 69 mph with a 44° launch angle. Mahomes has been shown to throw as fast as 62 mph. That would travel approximately 82 yards on a windless day in Mexico City.

## What was the fastest ball ever thrown?

105.1 miles per hour

The fastest pitch recognized by MLB was on September 25, 2010, at Petco Park in San Diego by then Cincinnati Reds left-handed relief pitcher Aroldis Chapman. It was clocked at 105.1 miles per hour.

**How fast is an object falling after 1 meter?**

Free fall / falling speed equations Gravity accelerates you at 9.8 meters per second per second. After one second, you’re falling 9.8 m/s. After two seconds, you’re falling 19.6 m/s, and so on. It’s the square root because you fall faster the longer you fall.

### How fast does a human fall feet per second?

What it means is that if we fall for one second we’ll reach a speed of 32 feet per second. After two seconds we reach 64 feet per second. The speed rises as the square root of height, but in direct proportion to time. So acceleration is trickier than it might first seem.

**What happens when you fire a ball at the same speed out of a truck moving in the opposite direction *?**

If you are driving in one direction, at one particular speed, then you fire a shot in the opposite direction at the same speed you are driving, the distance traveled by the bullet will be 0. The bullet would stay there in the air, just like an old cartoon scene, and then will fall. That our friends, was really amazing.

#### What do you observe when an object is thrown outside from a moving train?

When you are outside, you will see the train moving. The ball will always be in front of the person who threw it. Therefore it will move on a diagonal line. That line is straight, however!
