Transcript of Newton's Three Laws of Motion in Football

By: Andy Wray Newton's Laws of Motion in Football What Is Football? Video Pictures The first football game was played in 1867 between Rutgers University and Princeton University. There are 11 players at each side of the ball. On offense, there is one Quarterback, up to three Running Back(s), five Lineman, and up to five Receiver(s). On defense, there are three or four Defensive Lineman, four Defensive Backs, and three or four Linebackers. The object of the game, in Newton's terms, is to either to stay in motion on offense or stop the motion of the offense on defense. The way a winner is decided is by who scored more points. A touchdown is six points, followed by either a one point kick or a two point play. A field goal is kicking the ball through the goal posts, which is three points. The least common way to score is a safety, which is tackling the offensive ball carrier in his end zone. How Does it Relate? Each of Newton's Three Laws relate to an aspect of football.
For the first Law, an object at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon by and outside force and an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force, is the primary objective of defense. You must stop the motion of the offense and start your own. You want to neutralize the ball carrier's inertia. How does that occur?
With Newton's second Law, F=ma. The best way to stop the offense is to stop them before they can get going by tackling them. The bigger and faster you are, the harder you hit. The action force must be strong enough to make the offense player fall down as a recation force On offense, if you are bigger and faster, then it will be harder for the defense to stop you.
Newton's third Law relates the most. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This is especially true for scoring. At the start of the game, the forces (scores) are balanced. Over time, the forces become less balanced as the teams score more.
Newton's law of Universal Gravitation relates to all aspects of football. the field goal kicker must kick the ball with enough force to resist gravity so the ball can travel over the crossbar. The quarterback's pass must stay in the air long enough to complete the pass. On this play, the Minnesota running back delivered such a powerful hit, the defender collapsed, which is Newton's third law. Law #1 This picture show a collision that stops the running back's motion. Law #2 This picture shows a powerful hit by the defender gaining acceleration and hitting the offensive player. Law #3 This picture shows the force of the score in a football game. The home team has a greater score, so the forces are unbalanced.
