Explain how Newton's second law of motion is used in sports?
According to Newton's second law of motion, the rate of change of a body/object is directed proportional to force applied to it and takes place in the direction in which the force acts. Force=Mass×Acceleration You may have noticed that while catching the faster-moving cricket ball,a fielder often pulls his hand backward with the moving ball. This is because In doing so, the fielder increases the time during which the high velocity if the moving ball decreases to zero. Therefore, the Acceleration of the ball decreases and therefore impact of catching the faster-moving ball is also reduced and the fielder did not get hurt in his hand.
