Transcript of Newton's Laws of Motion in Basketball

Newton's Laws in
Basketball By: Meredith Jeter Introduction Newton's First Law Newton's Second Law Works Cited Newton's Third Law When someone jumps to block the ball,
they have been set in motion and
cannot change direction until gravity
brings them to the ground. The mass of the ball (623.69 grams) times the acceleration of the ball (0.5 m/s) equals the force (311.85 Newtons). When you shoot a ball, you apply force on the ball, and the ball applies force on you hand. The action is applying force and the reaction is the ball moving. All the shots in the video didn't just happen. There was no witch using magic to control them. There was a force behind them however. All three of Newton's laws applied there. http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/c88.0.403.403/p403x403/534142_10151226189468463_892440925_n.jpg http://media.mwcradio.com/mimesis/2012-01/03/2012-01-03T062805Z_1_BTRE8020HYW00_RTROPTP_3_SPORTS-US-NBA-MAVERICKS_JPG_475x310_q85.jpg http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100522070439/nba/images/2/20/Kobe_Bryant_Free_Throw.jpg
