If a person is weak the ball might not even make it to the hoop. If the person is strong they could shoot the ball perfectly. There is a lot of leg strength that goes into shooting a basketball also, the right amount of leg force can make your shot that much more accurate. Researchers in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at North Carolina State University did experiments and studied which angles can a shot be successfully “banked” in. If a person is shooting the ball from the corner, than it would be pretty hard the bank the shot into the hoop.
First of course are court measurements. The hoop diameter is approximately 18 inches wide and the length from hoop to hoop usually ranges from 84 to 94 feet depending on what facility you are playing in, also the court wideness would normally be about 50 feet. A men’s basketball itself is about 9.5 inches in diameter whereas a women’s’ ball is 9.2 inches in diameter. Basketball sizes may not seem like a big difference on paper, but in a game, an experienced player such as myself could definitely feel the difference in my hands. Next, a three-pointer, known as a three-point field goal is a shot in basketball made from beyond the three-point line.
The sprain is primarily an injury to the ligamentous supportive structures of a joint. It seldom occurs without affecting muscle tendons crossing the joint. The sprain is categorized into first, second, and third degrees of intensity. The intensity of a sprain is best determined by the extent of the dancer^s disability as well as the tenderness elicited by feel or palpation and the amount of hemorrhage and swelling present. A dancer with a second or third degree sprain must routinely be referred to a physician for x-ray examination and diagnosis, because fracture is commonly associated with a twisted joint.

My research topic I’ve chosen to do is “How much energy does it take to dribble a basketball?” My hypothesis is that I think it will take an excel amount of energy to dribble a basketball. Basketball isn’t an easy sport to play. You have to use most of your energy by running back and forth on the court. You have to play defense and offense. Dribbling a basketball is an extra thing to worry about when playing basketball.
The official height for the basketball hoop is 10 feet. Now, the average height in the NBA is 6 feet 7 inches. They have to use mostly vertical force to launch the ball off their hands, and come back down at an arc, to go into the 18 inch diameter basketball rim. Although, if you look at a layup you don’t use and horizontal or vertical force at all, you use the momentum from running transferred to the basketball hitting the backboard and going into the hoop. You can use Newton’s third law of motion for the layup and really everything else in basketball.

The triathlete has an open fracture of the Radius. (Image 1) As can be seen in the above picture the Radius is a bone in the lower arm, on the same side of the arm as the thumb. As people when falling-outstretch their arms to break their fall-the radius may received several quite heavy blows. This may weaken the joints around the radius and may cause it to dislocate. The triathlete has landed on the side of his radius, and the radius has broken in half and has pierced the skin.
