Football physics: The "impossible" free kick - Erez Garty

Football physics: The "impossible" free kick - Erez Garty | Enjoy Physics | Scoop.it
In 1997, Brazilian football player Roberto Carlos set up for a 35 meter free kick with no direct line to the goal. Carlos’s shot sent the ball flying wide of the players, but just before going out of bounds it hooked to the left and soared into the net. How did he do it? Erez Garty describes the physics behind one of the most magnificent goals in the history of football.

Thanks To The Magnus Effect, This Basketball Does Something Pretty Weird When Dropped

Thanks To The Magnus Effect, This Basketball Does Something Pretty Weird When Dropped | Enjoy Physics | Scoop.it
Drop a basketball from a height, you've got a few flights of stairs to descend to retrieve it and you might even owe an apology to an angry passer-by. But if you give it enough height and add a dash of backspin, you can watch it say GOODBYE, FRIEND as it curves a great distance away from its intended flight path. This is the Magnus effect, where the descending, spinning basketball drags air around it, forming areas of lower pressure and high pressure, causing it to swerve away.
