A ball bouncing upwards goes against the forces of gravity but when it falls back to the ground, it obeys the principle of the force of gravity thus accelerates faster. Acceleration triggers speed hence making the ball appear elongated. A bouncing ball squashes upon hitting the ground because its entire body does not hit the ground simultaneously. Upon hitting and reaching the ground, the ball flattens out because of the gravitational pull on it. The squash will make a bouncing ball appear deformed although the nature and shape will remain... Discussion Principles of squash and stretch In animation, the speed at which a bouncing ball...

...ball’s flight thus verifying the principle of Conservation of Energy. Introduction The ballistic pendulum entails a gun, which fires a small ball into the underlying pendulum. Originally, the ball is moving but the underlying pendulum is static. After the ball goes into the prevailing pendulum the tow move together at the identical speed. Therefore, it rises to the maximum height allowed by their original kinetic energy... In the experiment, the ball with mass m is fired from the spring gun with an original horizontal velocity v1. At time t= t1 , it collides with the pendulum with the mass M and the corresponding length L, which is originally at rest. At t=t2 the...

...ball was launched gravity pulled it and it fell down, this angle of the throwing arm was adjusted accordingly for proper launch so that the ball went straight. 2. Mount the throwing arm on a piece lying on the bottom of the arm. 3. Mount the cup for holding the ball at the end of the throwing arm. 4. The barrier support was not strong enough to hold 60 lb force with which the bungie pulled the arm up with. Choose stronger type of wood that can bear the force and does not get ripped to make the barrier Analysis 1. Range : The range is the distance covered by the ball after launch. The maximum range... ?Improvements The angle of the throwing arm was initially stopping at an angle of 90°, so as soon as the...

...Ball, 2012). In as much as the government of US tries to extradite Assange, the founder of Wiki leaks, he received numerous supports from various governments in the world. In fact, the government of Australia denoted that Assange did not commit any crime, by revealing the classified military and diplomatic documents of United States (Beckett and Ball, 2012). Furthermore, in recognizing the efforts of wiki leaks in promoting free speech, media organizations such as the Economics, awarded the organization with a medal referred to as New Media Award. An organization... The decision by Julian Assange to publicize American diplomatic messages by Julian Assange amounts to freedom of speech (Beckett and...

...ball and has squared his shoulders towards his ankles. On the other hand, the Volleyball spike-analysis of body segment movements is complex. These movements involve the take off phase as well as coordination aspects during flight phase. The most commonly preferred spike position is position four against diagonal spikes. The flight angle of the ball is also considered while the jump height is essential for the success in volleyball spikes. In addition, body segments contribute in a sequential manner from proximal towards distal in order to increase the optimal jump height (Payton 91). c) In the rugby lateral pass, the hands follow a curvilinear path; to...
