Griffin, Hour 9
Look At Me!
When you hit the ball it has momentum but when it his the ground it loses momentum then the friction from it rolling will eventually stop it. So when you bunt the ball will stop very fast because there will be very little momentum so it will not roll that fast and it will stop. But if you hit the ball hard it will stop faster because it is rolling faster so more friction is happening. But if there is short grass it will take longer to slow down than if there is long grass.
1. Will a ball go farther with a wooden or metal bat?
2. Will a baseball roll farther on grass or dirt?
3. If you dive will you go farther than when you slide?
4. Can you run faster in the slide faster on grass or dirt?
