Basketball on Earth vs. Moon
Gravity - Forces of attraction
Every object that has mass exerts gravitational pull on every other mass.
Ocean tides are caused by the gravity of the moon
Standard gravity from Earth is 1 g force.

On the Moon
Weight: 1/6 less than on earth.
Jumps become 6 times higher remain -Remain in flight 6 times longer
Me on the moon: 22.5 lbs, vertical leap of 12 feet, and remain in the air for six seconds.

Path would become a wider and taller
Would spend more time in the air without an increase of speed.
Will travel a greater distance, higher, and longer but not faster
According to Newton’s 2nd Law, when a player leaps from the ground toward the basket, they will return to the ground at the same rate as they left, given that they don’t
foward motion on the moon is much diffrent from on the moon.
in space the is no gravity to slow down the ball or to stop it it will go miles and miles until it hits something just like newtons law
newtons law - Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.

The Ball
On the earth

forward motion
We would like to give a special thanks to all the people that gave us this opportunity:
Dr. Bruce Bukiet, Miss Perry, Mr. Hueston, Dr. louis Ray, Raritan Valley, Mrs. Patel, and Mrs. Johansen. A Special thanks to Mrs. Tycene Edd for making all of this possible.
