The ball will fall **0.757 m** while traveling from the pitcher to the catcher if thrown at 43.3 m/s.

#### Explanation:

What is the time to reach the catcher?

speed = distance/time so

time = distance/speed

How far vertically would a ball fall, if just dropped, in 0.393 s?

The ball would also fall 0.757 m while traveling from the pitcher to the catcher if thrown at 43.3 m/s. If thrown at a speed in excess of 43.3 m/s, it will fall less distance.

I hope this helps,
