The physics involved in soccer???HELP PLS I am writing an extra credit paper which is +10 pts added to my final grade....I decided to do it on soccer. He wants use to pick a topic that involves physics and write a 4 pg paper..... This is my paper so far: In the game of soccer many physical aspects occur as soon as a ball is kicked. From the moment when a soccer player’s cleat makes direct contact with the ball to the moment when the ball it hits the ground or is shot into a goal, many different physical concepts become involved. I will touch base on a few of these concepts: 1. the effects that velocity has on the ball 2. The path the ball takes after being kicked (projectile motion) 3. and some important forces acting on the ball while it is in the air. Examples would be drag, gravity, flow of air, aerodyamics, Magnus Effect... I just need to know if I'm off at a good start??? I havent been on this forum since last summer and it was very helpful! Please respond!
