The kinematics and dynamics of projectiles in sports is a complex topic involving several physical quantities and variables such as time, distance, velocity, acceleration, momentum, force, energy, viscosity, pressure, torque, bounce, sliding, rolling, etc. The analysis of these complex sets of multidimensional information, including the correlation between different variables, is an important requirement for the clear understanding of projectile trajectories in sports. However, those who do not…

A simple determination of air drag using video tracker and modifiable projectile launcher

The air drag constant for different nose shapes of projectiles is determined with the help of a simple method combining a projectile launcher, video tracking technique and spreadsheet computer code



Are inertial forces ever of significance in cricket, golf and other sports?

In previous papers we investigated the motion of a spherical projectile rotating about an arbitrary axis, subject to a drag force, a lift or Magnus force, and in the presence of a wind. The aim was

Reply to Comment on ‘The motion of an arbitrarily rotating spherical projectile and its application to ball games’

Jensen (2014 Phys. Scr. 89 067001) presents arguments that the expressions that we have used in our recent paper (Robinson and Robinson 2013 Phys. Scr. 88 018101) for the lift force and possibly the

The Graphical Method for Decision of Restitution Coefficient and Its Applications

This paper presents a graphical method for decision of restitution coefficient based on ODE and determined this new characteristic for some sport game balls such as basketball, volleyball, etc.

A Mathematical Model for the Trajectory of a Spiked Volleyball and its Coaching Application

A wind tunnel test was conducted to empirically determine the relationship between the Magnus force (M), spin rate (ω), and linear velocity (V) of a spiked volleyball. This relationship was applied

A century of Gestalt psychology in visual perception: I. Perceptual grouping and figure-ground organization.

An integrated review of the neural mechanisms involved in contour grouping, border ownership, and figure-ground perception is concluded by evaluating what modern vision science has offered compared to traditional Gestalt psychology, whether the authors can speak of a Gestalt revival, and where the remaining limitations and challenges lie.

The physics of badminton

The conical shape of a shuttlecock allows it to flip on impact. As a light and extended particle, it flies with a pure drag trajectory. We first study the flip phenomenon and the dynamics of the

Resource Letter PS-2: Physics of Sports

This Resource Letter provides a guide to the literature on the physics of sports, updating Resource Letter PS-1, published 25 years ago (Ref. 17). The intent is to suggest literature for anyone
