I am a hack at this, so I am turning to you guys for help.
I need to develop a mathematical model do generate the speed of a softball when struck with differing amounts of force. The specs are: weight of ball 188g applied force 170 lb to 500 lb The force is applied by a pneumatic piston that strikes the ball. How do I do this? The end result will be fed into a larger computation.

Start off by writing f = ma for the ball.
