Could anyone let me know if they're aware of a website where I can input info about a ball, such as mass, initial velocity, angle, drag, and it will provide the distance travelled by the ball?

Thank you!

This seems rather complicated. Drag won't affect the trajectory much, so you can just do the calculations yourself assuming no drag. Mass also won't matter if we exclude drag.

Never seen a curve ball? Ever tried to drive a smooth golf ball?
To get a reliable answer you'll need all sorts of information about air density, humidity, surface texture, spin... Try some sports science websites.
