Description

The package "baseBall" was developed to provide a graphic animation of the trajectory of a baseball. The user can input the pitch and bat speed and find the trajectory of the baseball. This provides a fun and simple example of physics principles, especially air drag, as the model uses a quadratic drag model instead of the simpler linear equation. The original use was to complete an undergraduate physics class at Millersville University.
