Re: Day 19 and still no shill of this farce speed test info
With wood bats or composite bats? A would bat with less trampoline effect would naturally have a higher impact from the harder swing because the increased pitch speed has minimal effect on the trampoline of the bat material. However, if you have a composite with larger trampoline effect then the pitch speed would have an increased proportional impact on the equation.
If you want to study this throw a ball off a brick wall and throw another off a pitchback type trampoline netting. Then equally increase the throwing speed at each surface. The equal increase in speed will have a lesser increase on the speed the ball bounces back to you off the brick wall than off the pitchback type trampoline netting.
This is why I keep attempting to remind Tim of the importance of variables.
