Measurements are presented of the speed at which objects of different mass can be projected by an overarm throw. Light objects can be thrown faster than heavy objects, although the difference in speed is not as large as one might expect. For a factor of 60 increase in the thrown mass, there was a decrease of only 2.4 in the throw speed. The relatively small change in throw speed is due to the fact that the force that can be applied to a thrown object increases with object mass.
