The initial velocity is zero. In most basic physics problems like this one the initial velocity will be zero as a rule of thumb: the initial velocity is always zero, unless otherwise stated, or this is what you are solving for Cases where the initial velocity is not zero examples a cannon ball is shot out of a cannon at 50 mph a ball is thrown from at a speed of 15 mph etc

Speed(74) = 72.2Speed(50) = 44.7

56 mph

Speed(74) = 72.2Speed(50) = 44.7

Let's take a simple example to illustrate the concept. A pitch is thrown by a pitcher. It starts at zero velocity (in his hand) and reaches a final velocity of 100 mph. Average velocity will be (100 + 0)/2 = 50 mph Obviously the maximum velocity is 50 X 2 = 100 mph However this is only true if the initial velocity (or the final velocity for a ball slowing down) is zero.

72 mph and it was thrown by Michelle Smith hope this helps

It is harder to hit a softball thrown from a perfesional softball player than it is to hit a baseball thrown from a major leager. The reason is the angle of the pitch (softball has more of an angle there for it is harder to hit) and the quickness/speed( softball mounds are closer to the plate and a softball, lets say from jenny finch, can be thrown at upwards of 68 mph; therefor it gets to the plate quiker than a 90 mph baseball pitch). IF you think what I wrote isn't true then google SPORTS SCIENCE BASEBALL VS. SOFTBALL. you will see (its a video) what I said is true,

I play softball so i should know ! The fastest pitch ever thrown by a woman was 80 something mph.

The average velocity of a thrown football is from 40 to 60 MPH. Although there has been faster velocities recorded.

Data is insufficient. initial velocity is 0. final velocity is 30 mph. Need acceleration to use the formula v = u + at.

There is no official fastest softball pitch recorded. The NPF (National Pro Fastpitch league) claims that pitches of 70+ MPH are common. The fastest pitch recorded at the 1996 Olympic Games was 73.2 MPH.

the final velocity = initial velocity + acceleration x time; since acceleration is negative final velocity = 45 - 10x3 = 45 -30 = 15 mph

No...well, yes...and no. Bats weigh about--what, two pounds? A-And a batter swings around...50-ish MPH? Get what I'm saying? Weight and velocity.

45 mph

No...If the softball was pitched from a distance of 43 feet it is equivalent to a ball thrown just over 95 mph from a distance of 60' 6" which is the pitching distance in major league baseball. If the 68 mph pitch was thrown from 40 feet then it is equal to a 102 plus mph pitch at 60 feet 6 inches. Because speed is the relevance of time and distance then a ball thrown from 2 different distances and takes the same amount of time to travel each distance means the further of which will have to travel faster to cover more distance.

114 mph

The limit is not so much a distance from Earth, but rather a velocity - called the escape velocity. (roughly 25000 mph) /Brian W

The velocity is 50 mph east. (Or 50 mph at 0 degrees.)

Velocity is speed plus its direction. -- "30 mph" is a speed. -- "30 mph north" is a velocity. -- "30 mph east" and "30 mph south" are the same speed but different velocities.

An example for velocity is:23,000 mph north.

about 50 to 55 mph

73.2 mph

73 mph

a = vf - vi/t, where a is acceleration, vf is final velocity, vi is initial velocity, and t is time interval. vf = at + vi vf = (-10mph/s x 5s) + 45mph vf = -5mph
