dc.description.abstractA great part of physics deals with motion, and the essence of sports is the human body in motion. The components of the human body that produce motion, namely the skeletal muscles and bones, and the sports equipment itself are bound by the laws of physics. Aspects of various sports, including baseball, basketball, karate, figure skating, golf, tennis, long jump, and more, will be examined using introductory-level physics. We will also discuss whether we have reached our limits in human performance in certain sports. All who appreciate the workings of the human body and the laws of science dictating performance in sports are welcome.en_US
