Description

A baseball travels across different surfaces at different paces. The goal of this experiment is to find a percentage difference in speeds the ball will reflect off a given surface. The ratio between the initial speeds and final speeds will be known as the coefficient of restitution and will be used to compare the pace of the two surfaces. In the Northwest Conference, NCAA Division III teams play on four turf-based infields and five dirt-based infields.
