This soccer science fair project serves to acquaint students with basic information on how the amount of air in a soccer ball can affect the distance it travels when kicked with a consistent force. The greater the air pressure in the ball, the farther it will travel when a force is applied. In the process of conducting the research, the student will learn that atmospheric pressure may also affect how far the ball will travel.

A science fair project based on the effects of different types of turf on the bounciness of a soccer ball studies the physics and energy of the ball. Find three types of turf where you can perform your experiment. Select a field that's planted with Kentucky bluegrass, one with Bermuda grass and one that has artificial turf.
The physics of football — soccer science may change the way you watch the #WorldCup Explore the science behind the sport (with free access to research articles) By Charon Duermeijer, PhD Posted on 2 July 2014 People from around the world are joined together by a sport some claim dates back to the world of the Ancient Greeks and Romans.

The Physics Of Soccer – Kicking Kicking is fundamental to soccer. It is informative to analyze a soccer kick using physics. The schematic below illustrates a kick in action. To analyze the kick we can treat it as an inelastic collision in one dimension, between soccer ball and foot.
How far the ball will go does not just depend on how hard a player throws or kicks it; it also depends on the angle at which the player launches the ball. In this sports science project, you will investigate how launch angle affects the distance that a ball travels by filming…. Read more.

Make a line graph of your data. Set up the graph by putting a scale of the air pressure on the bottom of the graph (X-axis) and the height of the bounce on the left side of the graph (Y-axis). Now use your data table to plot points on the graph. Then draw a line to connect the dots.
Eighth Grade, Physics Science Projects. (45 results) Physics is the study of matter — what is it made of? How does it behave? What laws or equations describe it? From subatomic particles, to the Big Bang, modern physicists study matter at a tremendous range of scales.
Science Fair Project Idea. Physicists sometimes study matter under extreme conditions. For example, think of the emptiness of interstellar space vs. the unimaginable crush of pressure at the center of a neutron star, or an object dipped in liquid nitrogen vs. the tiles on the space shuttle during re-entry.
