Transcript of Application Of Newton's Laws: Basketball.

By: Julia Bussberg Applications Of Newton's Laws:
Basketball. Newton's 1st Law Of Motion
(Law of Inertia) Newton's 2nd Law Of Motion
(Law Of Force And Acceleration) Newton's 2nd Law occurs when passing the ball. The 2nd law states that if the mass of an object remains constant, acceleration increases as the force increases. So when passing, you have to use the right amount of
force according to the amount of mass
of the basketball, to throw it where
intended and how fast or hard. Cited Sources Used- Newton's 3rd Law Of Motion
(Law Of Action-Reaction) "Isaac Newton Laws of Motion in Basketball." LIVESTRONG.COM. N.p., n.d. Web. 27 Nov. 2012. <http://www.livestrong.com/article/401393-isaac-newton-laws-of-motion-in-basketball/>.

"Google." Google. N.p., n.d. Web. 27 Nov. 2012. <http://www.google.com/search?hl=en>. Newton's 1st Law of motion occurs in basketball when shooting. Well actually those few seconds of holding the ball before shooting a free throw, when the ball is at rest. The player only has a a little bit to make a shot, after the ball has been in motion from being dribbled up and down the court until the player was fouled. When holding the ball, the ball is at rest making all the forces balanced. The force of gravity and normal force are applied to the hands of the shooter. Those two forces are the only ones acting upon it at this time. When they releases, the forces become unbalanced. Newton's 3rd Law of Action-Reaction could be used in basketball, when shooting or also rebounding. When a player makes their shot to the basket, their hand exerts a force on the ball towards the basket(which would be the action). Then in return the ball could also bounce back off the backboard with the same amount of force(which would be the reaction). Which could cause a player to jump to the ball and exert force again towards the basket, which is rebounding. Background information on Basketball- On 1891, Dr. James Naismith, a Canadian physical education student and instructor at YMCA Training School started looking for an energetic indoor game. The purpose of the game was to keep the students in shape(especially during the winter months.) So when they were unable to think and play in any outdoor related activity. One day, an idea hit him and he pegged a peach basket on a 10-foot elevated track. At the same time, he wrote some basic rules for the game and called it ‘basket ball’.
