Transcript of The Science behind SOCCER!

The 3RD Law...
Th 3rd law is Law of Equal and Opposite Reaction. This means that if you kick the ball, it will kick back at you just as hard. You usually don't realize this because your leg doesn't seem to move, but this is because you leg has more mass meaning it has more inertia, which is the resistance to move.
Momentum too...
When a player kicks the ball, they transfer their momentum to the ball. Momentum is the velocity of object times its mass. When they pass the ball to each other, too. They use their feet to slow the momentum of the ball by moving with the ball and resisting it slowly. This way, they can have more control over the ball.
The Magnus Affect....
The Topic...
Soccer one of the most physical sports there is. Soccer just like everything else in the world is involved in science. It is an intense game to watch and play. The game is played on a grass field about 115m long and 75m wide. Each team is allowed to have a maximum of
11 players on the field. The point of the game is to get a circular ball, which is approximately 27 inch in diameter, into a goal that is only ten feet
wide and eight feet high. Players can use any part of their body to score but they can't use their arms and hands. The game consists of fast pace movements and intense acrobatic exercise. The game sounds simple but there is actually a lot of physics behind soccer. Just kicking a ball
relates to the physics of motion, the physic of friction, and even aerodynamics. So by learning the physics behind soccer, any player can become a much better soccer player.

The 1ST Law...
The game of Soccer involves Newton's Laws of Motion. The 1st law is Law of Inertia. This unbalanced force could be: gravity, wind, or any moving object. In soccer, however this unbalanced force is usually the soccer player' foot. He or she will be using a muscle in their body to create a force to move the leg and kick the ball.

The 2ND Law...
The Science behind SOCCER!
By: Aylissa Garcia
The 2nd Law is Law of Acceleration. If the ball has a lot of mass then you will have to apply more force to the ball. If the ball has little mass then you will apply little force. In soccer it is important to know this law because if you want the ball to be moving fast, you must apply force. If you want the ball to move a little then you would apply less force.
Curve Shot....
Soccer is very most popular in Europe and American. It has vivid and interesting history in the world of sports. Early evidence of soccer being played as a sport finds occurrence in China during the 2ND and 3RD centuries in BC. Recorded facts also support that the Romans and Greeks used to ppay ball for fun and frolic. In 1815, the popular English School and Eton cam forth with a set of rules, known as the Cambridge Rules. Football(Soccer) was segregated into two groups; some colleges and schools opted for Rugby rules that allowed tripping, shin kicking, and also carrying the ball. FIFA was established in the year of 1904 and by the early 1930's, different leagues were operating from various countries . FIFA is credited with organizing the first world cup in Uruguay. The history of soccer is rich with events, development and its growing craze all over the world. You will find yourself amazed as you learn about different times of this wonderful sport that has held our awe admiration for over 3000 years..
Most soccer people are also known for their spectacular shots, like the curve shots into the back of the net. Its all about the physics. A soccer ball is simply the projectile that is flying through the air with the initial velocity. The reason the ball curves is because the kicker kicks that ball at a certain angle and velocity. Once the ball is in the air it is really the air that is curving the ball. Professional soccer players will usually kick the ball and add a little spin on it to neglect as much air resistance as possible. In a free kick which is usually 18 to 30 meters away from the goal, players would actually want air resistance because the air will curve and bend the ball in a way to trick the goal keeper. Players must hit the soccer ball with the precise velocity and with a particular spin. In a normal kick, the ball would travel at roughly 65mph. The Magnus Affect is the reason the ball curves through the air. When a ball spins through fluid matter, it creates a barrier of air, kind of like a force field. This affect will make the ball travel with just enough speed and curve through the air to trick and beat the goal keeper. World class soccer players are best known for their free kicks because it is the mot exciting when you see physics applied to Soccer.
