"Do you think about science when you play baseball? Probably not. But you use science anyway." In sports, Making the Play involves more than athletic skill--it's all possible because of physics! Linking scientific concepts such as momentum and launch angle to actions common to each sport, this new series unveils the unseen world of forces at work behind each bat, ball, or club. High-contrast design and relatable images of people at play provide a colorful backdrop to each high-interest title. An elementary introduction to the physics involved in the sport of basketball, including scientific concepts such as launch angles and inertia, and actions such as dribbling and shooting. Includes TOC, diagrams, glossary, book references, websites, and index. Full-color photographs throughout.
