Denver vs. Patriots



So while watching the end of the game, the Patriots had a chance to save the game by kicking an onside kick about 20 yards and recovering it. But in order to do that, it requires little amount of force so it goes just 10 yards, close enough so the Patriots can recover. So today we're going to find the force but instead of a football we'll use just a ball. So let's say the ball is kicked with an initial speed of 10 meters per second. And time goes fast here so they need to get it by in 2 seconds. Will it reach 10 yards in 2 seconds ? Well first we have to see what we have; Vi = 10 m/s, Vf =0 m/s, t = 2 s, no acceleration given and we have to find the distance (X). So we use X = .5(Vf + Vi) * t. So that gives us. 5 * 10 * 2 which is 20 meters. And 1 meters is 1.09361 yards. So therefore, 10 meters is 10.9361 yards. So they can make it 10 yards in the given time. But in the end, Denver recovers and win the game.
