1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The fastest pitched baseball was clocked at 46 m/s. If the pitcher exerted his force (assumed to be horizontal and constant) over a distance of 1.0 m, and a baseball has a mass of 145 g. What force did the pitcher exert on the ball during this recordsetting pitch? 2. Relevant equations f=ma 3. The attempt at a solution I know that newtons are (kg*m)/sec^2, but I only have a velocity, not an acceleration, so I can't figure out the right force.
