Newton's Three Laws of Motion in Football
Transcript of Newton's Three Laws of Motion in 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.
