Physics of swimming

Physics of Swimming When i first looked up the physics of swimming, i got many different answers. There were many different ways that swimming can tie into physics. I am going to give a formula that is on the refrence table and can relate to because weve used it in physics class before. To kick 100 meters it takes 80 seconds. When kicking, a swimmer can travel at a velocity of 1.25 m/s. To pull 100 meters it takes 60 seconds. When pulling, a swimmer can travel at a velocity of 1.6 m/s. To sw

Physics of Roller Blading

There is a lot of physics though out the process of roller blading. There is Newtons 1st law, friction, work, and if your not too good at it; collision. Newtons 1st Law: Also known as the Law of Motion, Newton's 1st law states that if the net force exerted on an object is zero, the object continues in its original state of motion. In other words, if your rolling down a hill with no breaks, your wont stop until something gets in the way to stop you. Friction: Kinetic friction is the fricti

Physics of the Slap Shot!

Physics of Hockey — The Slapshot In the slapshot, players can clock puck speeds of over 100 miles per hour, making it the hardest shot in hockey. The hockey player begins the slap shot by raising the stick behind his body, as shown below. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slapshot Next, the player violently strikes the ice slightly behind the puck, and uses his weight to bend the stick, storing energy in it like a spring. When the face of the blade strikes the puck the player rotates his wrists
