Hello. As some of you know, i am a field hockey player and have realized that physics applies to Field Hockey in a few ways. When starting the ball at the beginning of the game, physics plays a big role. When the ball is first contacted with the stick, it has an initial velocity as well as a vertical velocity. As the ball travels down the field, it has a vertical acceleration of 9.81 m/s^2 when it leaves the players stick. Field hockey and the motion and speed of the ball has something to do with physics.
