I am supposed to relate work, force and distance to each other and to a sport.

2. The attempt at a solution

I chose to describe golf. Here is how I am relating work, force and distance in the game. Could someone just check to make sure I have the right relationships?

1. When the golfers club hits the ball the kinetic energy from his swing gets transfered to his golf ball

2. Because of his energy he is able to do work - applying a force and making the ball move a certain distance

3. the more energy he gives to his swing the more work he can do. Therefore a greater force will be applied to the golf ball and it will travel a greater distance

4. If the golfer wants the ball to travel a specific distance he must perform a specific amount of work, thus applying a force.

Thank you in advance!
