Physics of Volleyball
By. Annie Pearson

Serving: gravity is exerting a downward force on the volleyball. This downward force is what causes the ball to fall down on the opponent's side, after clearing the net. To assist gravity, you can snap your wrist which adds top spin the skids over the ball as you serve.
Passing:Gravity exerts a downward force on the ball, To account for the force of gravity, simply follow through with your forearm when bumping, to exert force on the ball, over a longer period of time. This will cause the ball to go higher and ensure that the target player has time to prepare herself beneath the ball.

Work,Volocity, Acceleration
work: when a force moves an object. In Volleyball, the force is the player and the object is the ball. When the player hits, spikes, or serves the ball it moves in the direction in which the force has been applied. Hopefully, that direction will be over the net, when spiking or serving, and to the target when bumping.
Velocity:is the speed of movement. You can figure out the velocity of a volleyball shot by dividing the distance your ball traveled by the amount of time it took to get there.
Acceleration: is an increase in velocity. Let's say you've just served the ball, it's gone over the net, and is falling to the ground. As gravity pulls the ball to the ground, it accelerates. If you gently lob the ball over the net and your opponent sends a hard spike back at you, that's another example of acceleration.
Newtons three laws of motion
Newton's first law states that, " An object at rest will stay at rest, and an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force."
How does this affect Volleyball? : Newton's first law of motion affects every volleyball player who botches a serve and sends the ball snacking into the net. Every player who blocks a hard-hit ball from an opposing player feels the law's effect on her stinging arms.
