how long does it take a softball to cross homeplate at 43 feet if the ball is going 65 miles per hour?

Is homeplate 43 feet wide?

I wonder if you meant how long does it take for the ball to reach homeplate?

I memorized long ago 60mph is the same as 88 feet/sec

velocity=65*88/60 ft/sec

time=distance/velocity=43/(velocityinFt/sec)
