My background before getting sidetracked into the physics of sport was 30 years
experience in high temperature plasma physics research. It had no particular
relevance to baseball or softball, apart from the fact that it helps to teach and
study physics for 30 years or more to get on top of the subject. In 1990, Professor
Robert Adair at Yale University wrote a very popular book called “The physics of
baseball.” It is currently in its third edition and provides an easy-to-read and

The FRED apparatus delivered impacts at much lower velocities with an impactor
that was smaller than a baseball. However the steel impactor absorbs very little
energy during the impact while the softer baseball contributes to the total COR

Figure 3.4 shows the result of the calculation.21 To make the curve that
accommodates air resistance, a curve that is no longer a parabola (despite its
similarity to one), Flutie's initial launch speed was about 58mph (or about 26m/s).
Thus, the inclusion. 20 For more details about baseball physics, see Robert K.
