Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Some of my players aren't too bright, so I avoid big words while explaining that physics is the study of matter (an example is the matter of a defensive tackle) and its "what" through space and time?
2. I've drawn X's and O's and squiggly lines until I'm blue in the face (might be those dry-erase fumes as well), but the most important components good players understand is the part of physics that involves the study of motion, known as what?
3. When working with my new quarterbacks, we usually discuss how the football curves through the air (I usually say, "like a rainbow", as they understand that better). I'll sometimes bust out a fancy word that refers to the best description of the geometric, two-dimensional shape traveled by a football. Ignoring air resistance, what word is that?
4. Sometimes our games come down to precious points kicked by our kickers. When we work on making as many of those kicks split the uprights as possible, we talk about the term that means the speed, PLUS the angle and direction of an object. This is known as an object's what?
5. We require our offensive line to spend many hours with our strength and conditioning coach to help improve the amount of matter their bodies contain, a term called what?
6. An important component of every football game, especially those played in the rain, are our football cleats, those fancy, spiked shoes worn by all players. I explained to our strong safety that his "superstar skills" didn't stem from his new cleats, but because his cleats used what force resisting motion to stop and start?
7. I've looked near and far for recruits able to get up and go, and every time I think I found one, the University of Alabama takes him. My top secret best prospect for tight end has mastered the rate at which velocity changes over time, known as what?
8. When I'm working with my defensive line, we discuss the amount of force required to rotate an object around an axis point. This is very important when sacking a quarterback before he throws the ball. What is this amount of force better known as?
9. My team is known for my big running backs, guys that like to bust through the line and juke a defender all the way to the end zone. So we do a lot of film review and discuss the energy our backs have in motion, which is known as what?
10. As scientists like to apply their knowledge toward proof, I like to test my team in real life to see how well they apply these physics lessons. As such, a running back is running near the sideline heading for a touchdown. Which one of these players has the most relative momentum to use against the running back, giving him the best chance of making a tackle?
