Okay, I was lost for a second there guys
Let's take a quick example of the Coors fields
First it was mentioned that elevation means air is less dense as you climb. We know Coors is at a high elevation.
Next mentioned is Cold air is dense, warm [air] is less dense. We know generally Coors is played in cold air.
So does that mean that Coors field is a combination where the higher elevation increases ball's travel distance but the cold air decreases it?
thanks (man if only I was as active in asking questions now as I am now during my college physics class)
