Curveball Simulator

Views: 1270

With this software you can study how a big league pitcher throws a curveball by changing the values of the factors that affect the aerodynamic forces on the ball. Values include the pitch speed, wind, and weather conditions. These are the same forces that generate the lift of an aircraft wing.
