    Lets say you have a steel ball, if you applied enough S P I N, could you find some medicinal uses for it? Is it possible to apply infinite S P I N to a steel ball?

    I have a feeling that there may be more to this dam thing than just the Magnus effect. I mean, if you just spin a ball with your hands, friction will slow that spin down pretty quickly, and I wouldn't expect it to have such a drastic effect. Perhaps the wind coming into the dam and rising plays a part, or something like that.

    Basketballs, or BBs. A common part in Airsoft rifles is a part named the Hopup chamber/moduble/assembly, which applies a bit of backspin to the BB effectively straightening the trajectory and extending range slightly. Too much "Hop" causes the BB to drift upwards in flight and too little "Hop" has deminishing results.


    Can you explain how the basketball was able to bounce one the water?

    Why does the basketball make such a huge sound when it hits the water?

  • eric t
    eric t 7 months ago

    I never knew the name of the effect that makes a curveball curve. A curveball curves downward, anywhere between 12 to 6, and 2 to 8 depending on the angle of downward spin ( for a righty). I've heard from many folks who know baseball say that physics dictates even if you put a huge amount of upward RPM's on a ball, it's impossible to make it rise. Does anyone know if this is true and why, or why not? When certain pitchers with a lot of velocity, like Doc Gooden for example throw a fastball, it sure looks like it rises from the batter's belt to his numbers. However many other power pitchers like Noah Syndergaard have movement on their fastball, just not upwards.
