Ive been playing lacrosse for a pretty long time now. Yet ive neglected to notice the physics that apply to lacrosse until i began taking physics my junior year. Now i realize that many concepts i learn in the classroom apply to me on the lacrosse field. For example, every time I take a shot, the path of the ball becomes a projectile. The velocity and placement of the ball are determined by the force i apply to it and the downward acceleration of gravity on the ball. Also, while shooting creating torque by twisting your shoulders and core creates a greater force to be applied to the ball as it leaves the stick of the player. Players that have perfected this can shoot pretty fast, the fastest shot ever recorded is 114 mph.
