Exactly how far the gunpowder particle will travel horizontally depends on three things particle shape, gravity, and air friction. Gunpowder for handguns comes in three different shapes known as ball, flattened ball, and flake or disk. To determine which gunpowder particle shape would travel the farthest, given the same initial velocity, one need only imagine trying to throw a soccer ball versus trying to throw a dish or plate baseball style. The aerodynamic shape of the ball powder (spherical) allows it to easily outdistance the other shapes.
Interrupting the Reflex Action The analogy with the typist was chosen because of the parallel of'coordination between eye and finger. But the same type of conditioned reflex is by no means destined to be completed after it is initiated. A familiar example is the baseball player swinging at a pitch. He sees the ball coming, accepts the pitch as being within his batting zone (this acceptance does not necessarily involve thinking with words), and starts his swing. If the batter is well trained, the swing is in the groove. 11 It is automatic in the same sense that the typist's finger movements are automatic. He sees the path of the ball and automatically adjusts his swing to meet the ball. But if the batter suddenly sees that the pitch is a bad one, he can stop the swing before it crossed the plate. He can break the circuit , so to speak, that has been established between the eye and his body muscles.
