Welcome to the homepage of
The Physics of Sports
Here you can find all you need to know in order to use physics to improve your skills. We will show you in-depth examples of the physics of different sports with video analysis of the use of these physics skills bettering our play in Tennis, Baseball, and Bowling.
We will display the methods needed to use topspin, sidespin, backspin, and trajectory of an ideal shot. We will demonstrate through video analysis the different shots and suggested times of use.
We will show how to throw different pitches including the change-up, 2-seam fastball, 4-seam fastball, splitter, and curveball. We will also demonstrate the proper trajectory to hit a home run in different major league parks.
We will discuss the effects of putting spin on the bowling ball, and theorize on how to throw “the perfect strike”.
