This is known as the Magnus affect. The spin on a baseball is defined as a vector that points on the axis’s rotation. And the magnitude of this spin vector is the number of revolutions per/sec, this is known as an angular velocity vector (Horney, A., Lowry, T., Schwenker, E., & wray, E....   [tags: speed, pitcher, curveball]

The Ball by John Berriman - This poem, by John Berriman, is about losing something that you love, and learning to grow up. It is about a little boy, who for the first time in his young life, is learning what it is like to experience grief at the loss of a much beloved possession - his ball. To us, the loss of a ball is of minor consequence, and our reaction to it is to say 'O there are other balls'. But to a little boy, this is not so. A dime, another ball, is worthless. Money is external, it cannot buy back our love, nor replace the things that we love: the things that really matter....   [tags: Poetry Analysis, Poem] 306 words

Therefore the gravitational force will be greater and the ball will travel faster and accelerate much faster hence the ball that travels down the ramp with a higher angle will have more momentum....   [tags: experiment, ramp, angle] 753 words
