Soccer is the most popular sport in the world. Soccer players all work very hard to keep in shape, and to improve their kick. Most of them don’t know that there is a scientifically correct way of going about doing this. I researched the physics of soccer and found some very interesting facts that all soccer players would do well to learn.
The physics of soccer use math to explain the behavior of the soccer ball as we observe it with the naked eye. Soccer physics explain why the soccer ball curves, why the ball bounces and how high it bounces as well as how the pressure in the ball affects the bounce or kick of the ball.
(Data used is from soccer ball at five feet, trial one) Coefficient of Restitution: CoR = sqrt (h/H) = sqrt (2.8/5.1) = 0.74. Uncertainty: CoR/ ΔCoR = H/ΔH + h/Δh. 0.74/ΔCoR = 5.1/0.2 + 2.8/0.2. ΔCoR = 0.02. Go up. Summary of Results. In general, the coefficient of restitution decreased slightly as the drop height increased, but only a slight amount.
Computer‐interfaced motion detector and accompanying software; soccer ball (or ball of comparable size and mass). Description of Procedure: Students use a motion detector to detect the motion of a soccer ball. Once the motion detector is started and the ball is

A soccer ball is kicked horizontally off a 22.0-meter high hill and lands a distance of 35.0 meters from the edge of the hill. Determine the initial horizontal velocity of the soccer ball. Problem Type 2: A projectile is launched at an angle to the horizontal and rises upwards to a peak while moving horizontally.
Physics labs are a big part of Oakland University’s research departments. Yang Xia, a distinguished Professor of Physics, has been working hard within the walls of Hannah Hall to provide research about microscopic imaging. Xia has many labs in the works at OU — he sees himself as a hands-on experimentalist.
Projectile motion is the motion of an object thrown or projected into the air, subject to only the acceleration of gravity. The object is called a projectile, and its path is called its trajectory. The motion of falling objects, as covered in Problem-Solving Basics for One-Dimensional Kinematics, is a simple one-dimensional type of projectile ...
