## Action and Reaction pt.2

Last time I talked about Netwon's 3rd Law, and how it is similar to offense in basektball. I said that "Newton believed that every action had an equal and opposite reaction, meaning that all forces come in pairs. If object 1 exerts a force on object 2, then object 2 must exert a force back on object 1 which is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction." To be good at defense in Basketball, it would be great to follow a similar concept. On defense your goal when matched up to a player on 1 on

## Action and Reaction pt.1

Newton believed that every action had an equal and opposite reaction, meaning that all forces come in pairs. If object 1 exerts a force on object 2, then object 2 must exert a force back on object 1 which is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. Success in Basketball can be found by folling the same kind of idea, and it applies to both offense and defense. On offense, a key to running an efficient attack would be spacing. Spacing has to do with how far each of the five offensive players

Have you ever wondered why you always come down when you jump up? It's because of gravity a force that is always present on Earth. Gravity is what pulls you back down after you jump up. It's the reason why a basketball travels in a parabola when you shoot it. It is taking effect on the entire flight of the ball, like the incline. It's just the normal force pushing upwards against the force of gravity, but eventually once the ball reaches 0 m/s the ball starts to accelerate back down at a rate of
