Were doing a project where we have to use Physics for derive an equation for the perfect basketball shot. Were still in the calculation phase and I've made a list of concepts to consider: Projectile motion ( ball to rim) Air resistance ( is this negligible? ) Velocity of shooter at apex of jump. Power/Energy ( transferred from shooter to ball while jumping ) I think this would be all we needed......Does anyone see anything that's missing? its ok to assume that the ball will be shot from a set position so momentum will not be factored in. Thanks in advance!
