Question: Smokin A pitcher throws a 0 142 kg baseball at 47 2

Smokin’! A pitcher throws a 0.142-kg baseball at 47.2 m/s (Fig. P21.62). As it travels 19.4 m, the ball slows to a speed of 42.5 m/s because of air resistance. Find the change in temperature of the air through which it passes. To find the greatest possible temperature change, you may make the following assumptions: Air has a molar specific heat of CP = 7R / 2 and an equivalent molar mass of 28.9 g/mol. The process is so rapid that the cover of the baseball acts as thermal insulation, and the temperature of the ball itself does not change. A change in temperature happens initially only for the air in a cylinder 19.4 m in length and 3.70 cm in radius. This air is initially at 20.0°C.
