Physics in playing mini golf



While playing mini golf or "glow golf" I discovered that physics is highly involved. Work and power plays a big role in this activity. The force you hit the ball and the distance the ball goes is how you can calculate the work done. Also you can calculate the power of the ball by dividing the work by the time it took for the ball to travel. The force you hit the ball is very important because it effects the distance the ball goes as well as the velocity. The initial velocity as well as the final velocity and acceleration plays an important role on if you will make it to the hole and how many hits it will take you to get the ball in the hole.
