Boy Meets World: Air Pollution Presentation
  • Science → Meteorology → Air Density

Cory and Shawn present their report on air pollution, in which they contend that the air density affects the performance of baseball teams during home games. This is because the air density affects the speed at which the ball travels through the air. They use the Colorado Rockies and the Philadelphia Phillies as examples: The Rockies average four more home runs per game because Colorado's air is much cleaner than Philadelphia's.
