In conclusion, air pressure has a direct influence on the distance that the ball will travel when thrown. The hypothesis stated that if pressure is added to the football, then the distance the ball projects will increase when distance is a function of pressure. Based on the data that was collected from the experiment, the hypothesis was supported. When the football had more air inside, it went the farthest distance compared to the other two pressures that data was collected from.
In the National Football League during the past two season there has been an ongoing argument and investigation that an football fan is either for or against. There are two different types of NFL fans, someone that is a fan of the New England Patriots or someone to hates them. On January 18th 2015, during the 2014-2015 football season playoffs the New England Patriots were playing the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship game. The Patriots won the game 45 to 7 and then the controversy started involving allegations against the Patriots. It came out that the Patriots football were supposedly deliberate deflated during halftime of the game.
A Need for Change Anticipation builds while players’ line in formation. Electric seconds pass while the quarterback yells the play. Shockingly, the players’ crash together in an explosion of energy, aggression, and sod. Televisions across America play this scenario over and over every Sunday during football season. Enthralled by the sheer athleticism and excitement of the sport, fans watch religiously, eyes glued to the screen.
Reading The Osage Firebird, by Sudipta Barchan, I learned it doesn’t necessarily have to be physical barriers in your way that you have to overcome. This is a story about a courageous young girl who knew that nothing would get in her way to stop her from pursing the profession she loves. In the beginning the author explains how Betty’s career got started and how she became interested in this profession. The text also states things about Betty’s heritage and background.
Since American football star Michael Webster’s death, Nigerian-American physician, Bennet Omalu performed an autopsy that surprisingly showed his cause of death was from sever damage of the frontal lobe of Webster’s brain. What happened to Webster’s brain is now called chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE, which is a degenerative disease. This “sickness” is due to the repeated impact of football related concussions. Since the discovery the NFL and all the players have taken serious repercussions in the attempt of lowering the amount of potential concussions. The sport of football might appear dangerous but now the safety measures have been and are still improving.
To our knowledge, this is the first study to compare head impact exposure in leagues with different coaching education requirements (HUF vs NHUF). It is also one of the largest samples (70 players) of youth football players to wear accelerometers during an entire football season. Overall, we found that players who participated in HUF leagues received fewer impacts to the head per practice at both the 10g (mean difference, 3.4) and 20g (mean difference, 1.0) thresholds. Over the course of a 12-week season with a mean 3 practices per week, this would equate to 90 fewer ≥10g or 36 fewer ≥20g practice impacts sustained by players in the HUF leagues. These differences were also maintained when examining the 8- to 11-year and 12- to 15-year age groups.
The “Birds aren’t real" conspiracy theory demonstrates how easily the conspiracy theory genre can spread misinformation.” One of the main characteristics of conspiracy theories is providing that sense of fear to captivate the audience believing the conspiracy into a reality. The "Birds aren't Real" conspiracy theory refers to conspiracy theories and hoaxes claiming that birds do not actually exist. These claims often posit that birds are simply drones or computer-generated images used by governments to spy on citizens. The conspiracy genre is often characterized by dark humor, satire, and skepticism toward authority.
Every fall, about 3 million children and their parents flock to football fields to play and watch the game they love. Although the monumental number of participants in youth football today, parents are still making decisions to let their child play contact football. However, children under the age of 18 should be allowed to play “contact football” because it teaches core values, fights childhood obesity, and improvements in technology have made football safer in the past 50 years. Childhood is the ideal time to learn life lessons and to grow your brain.
My project is about how temperature and air pressure affect the distance a football can be thrown. When the air is warmer the molecules move faster and spread apart, therefore making the air pressure lower and making the ball lighter. But when the air is cooler the molecules move slower and move closer together, making the air pressure higher making the ball
In Brain Birds: Amazing Crows and Ravens and in A Soft Spot for Crows the authors Terry Krautwurst and David Shaw both seem to have a positive views on Crows. Terry never tries to make them look bad or says anything that would hint at him despising them. Instead he present information while showing that they aren 't so bad after all. In the text it states, “ Like all families, they have their faults. But I think you will like them anyway,” (paragraph 1).
Kate Chopin’s novel, The Awakening opens with a scene of two birds, emphasizing that the motif of birds later within the novel will play an important part with setting the constant metaphor they bring. Throughout the whole novel the motif of birds is a metaphor for the Victorian women during that period -- caged birds serve as reminders of Edna’s entrapment and the entrapment of Victorian women in general. Edna makes many attempts to escape her cage (husband, children, and society), but her efforts only take her into other cages, such as the pigeon house. Edna views this new home as a sign of her independence, but the pigeon house represents her inability to remove herself from her former life, due to the move being just “two steps away” (122).

There can’t be any sport played without physics. Physics has a vital role in the field of sports. Physics can be linked with sports on many different levels. When we play sports, lift weight or even buy sports equipment we probably don’t know how much physics is applied on it. The manufacture has to consider about what will make the equipment better, and what material will cause the material to function at its max potential.
