Bungee jumping is a thrilling, spectacular and mind blowing sport. In terms of physics, it correlates to a variety of diverse properties and topics. Such as energy, momentum, gravity, forces and resistance.
In terms of energy, bungee-jumping involves both potential and kinetic energy. As the athlete reaches his altitude, and aproaches the edge, his potential energy is at its maximum peak. as the jumper then takes off, his kinetic energy increases and potential energy decreases so the faller now
Working out is the act of building mucsle and exercising your body. In preforming acts of runnig lifting or endurance, you engage in a variety of physics topics including friction, resistence, energy, forces and momentum.
For working out, the act of building mucsle demonstrates an example of resistance and or friction. When lifting heavy objects or moving in a forceful manor, it requires you to condemn in motion that essentialy tears the musles cause the force required is working out your mucsl
Football is a form of play consisting of a variety of different physics topics within the game. These topics include momentum, energy, forces along with acceleration and projectile motion.
In terms of momentum, football requires the biggest fastest and more momentum then your opponents in order to beat through them. With speed and size, these two factors may decide whether you can block a guy or plow through them. Its also conserved from when someone strikes another opponent and then it gets tr
<p>Longboarding is a particular hobby where a bunch of different physics topics are covered by a simple act that doesnt take much energy by the rider, but can still experience great thrills and excitement. Different keytopics with in this activity include, motion and forces, friction and energy.<br />
Motion and forces are key components of longboarding. The forces in particular enable the motion to take place. The force of gravity acts on the longboard and its rider. The greater th
Bowling is very unique in its set up as far as sports go. It consists of a series of 10 pins which stand in a particular sequence allowing a difficult yet potential strike by the thrower whos objective is to roll the ball and knock down the standing pins. However, if you go in depth and analyze the specifics of the sport, youll find that there are a variety of physics topics involved. Its a game of strategy and precision demonstrating examples of momentum, power, energy, friction and force in th
