A ball thrown by a pitcher on a women's softball team is timed at 65.0 mph. The distance from the pitching rubber to home plate is 43.0 ft. In major league baseball the corresponding distance is 60.5 ft. If the batter in the softball game and the batter in the baseball game are to have equal times to react to the pitch, with what speed must the baseball be thrown? Assume the ball travels with a constant velocity.
