Physics of Volleyball



Volleyball is an interesting sport. It's very fun to play with friends with no serious competition, but once it's played for real, it is a difficult sport to master. You'd think it would be physically impossible to hit a sphere with two cylinders. Our studies of momentum have indicated that the collision would bounce off at irregular angles. Since it is easy to make passing unpredictable, I do my best to flatten my wrists by rotating them. Creating a flat platform, I am able to successfully pass the ball straight (or at least to where i want it to go) more often. I'm still going to shank the ball every once in a while, but I increase the favorablility of my pass.
