An outfielder throws a baseball with an initial speed of 81.8 mi/h. Just before an infielder catches the ball at the same level, the balls speed is 110 ft/s. In foot-pounds, by how much is the mechanical energy of the ballEarth system reduced because of air drag? (The weight of a baseball is 9.0 oz.)
