Physics of Hockey

## Gravitational Force

In physics there is gravitational force all around with all objects. Gxm1xm2/r squared. Gravitational force is thanked by the orbits in outsides. Without it we would be non-existing. It's so cool how the moon and earth go around the sun without any problems and give us the seasons!

## Punch

What is Newton's third law? For everything action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. So you know when you get punched on your birthday right? You know how it hurts? We'll all those newtons are going into your arm but the cool part is that all the newtons you are taking is being pushed right back on your buddies hand. Too bad it hurts you than him

## Christmas Lights

Electricity is a part of physics. In physics we learned two types of systems that electricity can run through. Series and parallel. If Christmas lights were in a series circuit than if on light bulb went out, all of the light bulbs would go out. Then there would not be any pretty Christmas trees. Luckily parallel circuits if one went out there would still be a pretty Christmas tree due to the electricity flow not fully broken, the electric can still flow.

## Submarine Bombing

Back when WWII was still around, physics still abled back then, can you believe it. But I all seriousness, back in the 1940's, airplanes would drop gadgets into the water and those gadgets would send waves through the ocean to see if any submarines were underwater. If the wave signal came back the opposite direction, wherever it bounced off was the area of where the submarine was. Waves were useful in military tactics, go physics!

## Golf

There is tons of physics that go along with golf including velocity, distance, time, angle projectiles, gravity, friction, kinetic and potential energy as well. In golf each club has it's own angle. Therefore different distances if you use the saw amount of power or velocity in your shot. Gravity is always the same so we never have to worry about having our golf ball float in the air. I hope the physics in me goes well with tryouts

## Physics of Lacroose

Lacroose had been around for hundreds of years. Physics on the other hand have been around even since the universe started. Who knows how long that is? But lacroose does involve physics. Lacroose has acceleration of gravity, force, friction, mass, speed and torque. Lacroose involves heavily on the lacroose stick. The stick provides torque to make the shot faster and with more power. Firction is involved as well decreasing the amount of velocity. Friction could also being on the ground whe

## Physics of Kicking a Soccer Ball

When kicking a soccer ball there are a few mechanies involved. There is mass, velocity or speed, power, height, fricition, force, and distance. With just kicking a soccer ball all of these mechanies are included. If yuo want to know the distance when you can kick the ball can use some kinematic equations like v(avg) equals distance over time. Of course if you're trying to find the it would be v(avg) times time. You also have to keep in mind of friction and the mass of the ball as well as heig

## Physics of Hockey

Hey, my name is Theo and I am a senior at Irondquoit high school and I am taking Physics because I am taking as many sciences as I can to impress colleges to hopefully get into a decent college and get a great education toward a major in biochemisrty. I am an overall athlete but my sport that I love and live for is hockey. Maybe sometime doing a game, physics can really help me if my team needed sometime to happen. Honestly physics interests me so I am excited about the rest of the year. As w
