Simplified Models for the Drag Coefficient of a Pitched Baseball
Kagan, David; Nathan, Alan M.
Physics Teacher, v52 n5 p278-280 May 2014
The classic experiment to measure the drag coefficient involves dropping coffee filters. Wouldn't it be more fun to try something different? In fact, an experiment on the drag force is conducted nearly 4000 times a day during the baseball season and you have free access to this PITCHf/x data!
