Last weekend, Erica and I went to soccer practice and we applied our drills to units we have learned in physics class. Little did I know, everything we did had related itself to physics and a unit. For example, when kicking a ball from one end of the field to the other, I could determine the velocity of Erica's kick along with my own. First, I would measure the distance between where the ball would start and end. Then, another teammate would time how long it took to get to the opposite end. Using the formula, v=d/t, I would be able to calculate the velocity.

Also, being a very physical player, I always seem to hit someone and they fall afterwards. Now after gaining knowledge of physics, I realized that the force I apply to a player, they give off the same amount of force to my body.

Lastly, when aiming a header towards my designated area, I must consider the angle at which it comes towards me. "The angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection," therefore the ball is hit at the angle it came to me.
