In basketball, especially when jumping physics is used. The physics that is applied is Newton's third law. When I go to jump I apply a force onto the ground. In return the ground returns the same force I applied. That force the ground applies then brings me in the air. The more force I apply to the ground, the higher I jump. The picture above is from a video of me going to dunk a basketball. Unfortunately I was unable to post the video due to problems with it sending. Overall in basketball, physics is very relevant.
