  • Mathematics of Golf: The Golf Ball and Golf Club

    747 Words  | 3 Pages

    Golf is an activity enjoyed by people of every age. Everything from the dimples on ball to the angle of the club and the momentum of the swing to the layout of the course golf uses mathematics. Golf has so many aspects that I could have used for this paper, but do to lack of time I choose to focus on specifically the golf ball and golf club. These two items are essential for the game of golf and have also changed the most. The golf ball is designed in a way that always it to float through the air

  • Golf Ball Essay

    1005 Words  | 5 Pages

    1.0 Introduction A golf ball is a spherical ball with dimples on surface that specially designed to be used in a game of “golf”. The currently used material for the core body is rubber. Polybutediene rubber is synthetic rubber which is tough but elastic like the tires’ properties, this explains why most of the ball speed is due to the rubber core properties. The inner cover of golf ball is usually made up of surlyn, but sometime surlyn also made up the outer cover of golf ball. Surlyn is an ionomer

  • The Physics of a Golf Ball

    1262 Words  | 6 Pages

    The Physics of a Golf Ball The first written reference of golf was in 1457. Golf balls have had extraordinary changes since that time; they've gone from leather pouches to dried gum to today's dimpled balls. These dimples help decrease the drag and increase the lift. Different forces are applied to the golf ball when struck by the club. Golf clubs have grooves to create backspin. And then there are different variables that affect how a golf ball will travel, these include: lie angle and

    offered by the modern ball compared to previous golf ball. A good golf ball must “feel” soft to the golfer, but must be resilient enough to rebound to its original shape and hardness after the momentary deformation that necessarily results after being struck repeatedly with a force that can equal 10,000 N. The “feel” is thought to be attributed primarily to the ball’s flexural and tensile moduli (a material’s tendency to bend and the stiffness of an elastic material). Golfers want balls with high abrasion

  • How To Hit A Golf Ball

    have only to hit the ball off the nicely cut grass on usually a clear path to the hole. But if they hit a drive into the woods, then they have to make sure the ball does not hit any trees, branches, or other obstacles when exiting the woods. That’s why hitting a good drive is a must. With practice, even you can hit a fundamental drive. First, before you can drive a ball, you need the right equipment. You will need a number one wood, or driver, a golf tee, and, preferably golf shoes for extra traction

  • The Different Forms of Golf Balls According to the Dimples

    617 Words  | 3 Pages

    Different golf balls can affect the outcome of the shot. The different constructions of each ball can change the possible distances of the flight of the ball. Although different subjects may have varying results with each ball, the construction does have an effect on the outcome. The dimples affect the airflow around the ball and different dimples have different effects. Golf balls have not always had dimples on them. The balls that are used when playing golf used to be made of wood. They then evolved

    Driving Range Golf Ball Retriever The Golf Retrieving Mobile Robot is an undergraduate thesis of the DLSU students. It is a robot that is capable of retrieving golf balls automatically without the assistance of a person. This is very useful in a driving range or the area where golfers practice their swings to hit golf balls. The robot is named Greg, it is able to accumulate golf balls on the field. The problems that might arise are the confusion of the driving ranges and re-use of golf balls. The flow

    resistive force due to friction. The golf ball seemingly defies this theory by traveling farther with its disruptive surface texture that creates the second flow characteristic, turbulent flow. Turbulent flow is flow that is disturbed and creates whirlpool like features. The turbulent air actually lessens the difference in velocity of the air layer that is extremely close to the ball compared to the rest of the air and so lessens the friction acting on the ball. Drag is a major contributor to how

    cause and effect, e.g. A golf club hitting a golf ball, which is initially at rest. If every frame of the videotape is examined, we will not find a frame that shows the ‘necessary connection’ between the impact of the golf club on the ball and the spatial displacement of the ball. All we will see is the golf club undergoing spatial displacement followed by a frame of the golf club right up against the ball, and subsequently, a frame showing the displacement of the golf ball. We do not observe anything

    which seems frail and skeletal. Meanwhile, the outstretched arms are eerily thin and long and this serves to add a striking contrast to such a monolithic piece. A small and narrow neck precariously supports the statue's head just as a golf tee supports a golf ball. The whole structure looks somewhat fragile, as though it could collapse at any moment. The theme of support is also quite relevant. If we look at the base of the model, it is large, bulky; the figures feet are embedded in it, as if
