**Pitching and hitting can both be improved by a knowledge of physics. A curveball curves because its spin results in different amounts of force on opposite sides of the ball**.

** A study by a British University has determined the optimal speed, location, timing, and contact point for a penalty kick using statistical analyses. Swimming** ** Water is a more resistant medium than air, and one key focus for swimmers is reducing that resistance as much as possible to gain a competitive edge. With this in mind, the U.S. Olympic team recently hired a fluid mechanics professor to knock seconds off.**

** If you've seen Rafael Nadal play, you know how important spin is in the game of tennis. Balls hit with heavy topspin will drop down and hit the court sooner, allowing players to give greater speed to the ball and have higher net clearance.**** ****Pole vaulters are able to hurl themselves sky high using only the speed of their legs and a large plastic rod. Kimo morris uses Newtonian mechanics to explain how pole vaulters manage to defy gravity so impressively.**
