Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Anon on Monday, September 19, 2011 at 9:19pm.

In the game of baseball, a pitcher throws a curve ball with as much spin as possible. This spin makes the ball “curve” on its way to the batter. In a typical case, the ball spins at about 20.5 revolutions per minute. What is the maximum centripetal acceleration of a point on the edge of the baseball? Assume the diameter of the baseball is approximately 10 cm.
