Science Fair Project Ideas If a force is applied at any object’s COG, a football or anything else, the object will not rotate. To throw a spiral as a quarterback does, a force must be applied at some distance from the COG. Such a force causes the ball to rotate about its COG. The same thing happens when you pull on the rim of a wheel that is free to spin. Any object rotating about its COG is said to have angular momentum. Carry out an investigation to find out what momentum and angular momentum have to do with the constant rotation of a thrown football.

You can give the ball the same momentum by applying a force twice as big for half as much time. Or you can give the ball the same momentum by applying a force half as big for twice as long. If you tried to stop a car rolling slowly along a level surface, you could not stop the car quickly because you are not strong enough to apply a force big enough to stop the car in a short time. However, if you tied a rope to the car and pulled back against its motion, you could eventually bring it to rest. 1 What Is the Importance of Follow-through?

Aerobics can be defined as the use of large muscle groups for at least fifteen to twenty minutes while maintaining 60 to 85 percent of the body’s maximum heart rate. Many sports commonly considered to be aerobic, such as tennis and basketball, also have an anaerobic component. These activities require periodic vigorous bursts of action. Anaerobic training along with the regular aerobic training for these sports help the athletes endure fatigue. Even athletes in cross-country running can benefit from anaerobic training.
