Physics of bball



Marcus has been wondering why I always win in our 1 v 1 basketball games and their is lots of physics behind it.  The first part of my success is how high I am able to jump.  There are horizontal and vertical components to jumps and being able to shoot and or block shots during the top part of the flight plays a major role in winning.  I also am able to jump higher giving me the ability to have a longer hang time.  This increases the time during the top part of my flight.  The equation to calculate my time during the top period of the flight is d = V1t — 0.5g(t)2
