[quote=“RIstar”]A car goes 30 mph down a hill and at bottom of the hill the car hits the break and try’s to turn to look up the hill.
OR a car goes 60 mph down a hill and then hits the breaks and trys to turn at the bottom to face up the hill.
WHAT CAR WILL HAVE MORE ROTATIONAL FORCE, LINEAR FORCE AND MOMENTUM?[/quote]
We must first make an assumption about a potential variable, that being the mass of the car. Since it’s not given, we must assume it’s the same car and the same mass. If so, the car moving faster will have the greatest momentum, rotational force and linear force.
How does this relate to pitching? Offset pegged it correctly, I think. RIstar’s been saying this all along.
The thing that must be stated, yet again, is that any energy generated by movement of whatever speed is of no use at all if not used effectively and efficiently for a specific functional purpose. Move really, really fast in the stride and build up all kinds of momentum and you’ll not throw the ball any harder if that energy is dissipated or used up without being transferred eventually to the ball. Many things have to line up for it to happen.
So, RIstar, what’s your point? You know this has been said already.
