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...

Basic projectile motion without air resistance typically assumes gravity is constant. In reality, the acceleration due to gravity is proportional to the inverse-square of the distance between the centers of mass of the Earth and the projectile. When projectiles are near to Earth's surface,...
