Pitch velocity is one of the most fascinating statistics in baseball, as documented in the 2015 documentary Fastball. Modern measurements of pitch velocity are taken as the maximum velocity achieved at any point between the pitcher's hand and home plate. However, the velocity of the ball...

The goal of this project is for students to develop, analyze, and compare three different models for the flight of a sponge dart moving under the influences of gravity and air resistance. The first two models are based respectively on the common simplifying assumptions of no air resistance and...

Divers, especially novice divers, have concerns about running out of breathing air while at depth. One common rule taught to SCUBA divers is to ascend no faster than thirty feet per minute. In this project we will examine safe variable ascent rates, time required for a safe ascent using...
