1101PEA - Turbo Touch

  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.
The physical activity I participated in today was Turbo touch there are many different ways and rules of playing this game but these are the rules and how we decided to play the game. How to play the game you use a rugby ball and you are able to pass any where you want as long as the ball does not touch the ground. There are two try zones on either sides of the court or field you play on each try zone is a rectangular shaped space horizontally placed along the court/field. That is how you play the but here are the rules. You must make sure you pass at least twice before scoring and to score you must run the ball up to the line and place it in the try zone with out entering it or you can pass it in to a team mate standing by the try zone. You must tap the ball before starting You can only be touched twice then you must hand the ball over and if you drop the ball it is a hand over and you must be two metres away from the person tapping the ball if on the defending team.

The objective is the same as volleyball you have to make it touch the ground on the opposing teams side.

Projectile motion_1101PEA

What is projectile motion ?

Projectile motion is the motion that is made by a projectile that is propelled by a projector of sorts which is usually things such as sports balls, bullets, arrows,people,planes/helicopters and any other object that is either thrown or propelled into the air and has a flight path.














What are the three parts of projectile motion ?

Height of release - for things like sports(shot put) the height of an athlete can effect the projectile motion of the shot put. For example if two athletes were to throw a shot put at the same height, angle and speed but one was much taller than the other the taller athlete's shot put would travel a longer distance

Angle of release - The angle of release is also in-cooperated into projectile motion because for shot put if an athlete through a shot put at two high of an angle (for example 45 degrees) the shot put would not go it's full potential of distance. The recommended angle of release for a shot putter is in between 31 - 38 degrees because at this angle the shot put has the potential to go it's maximum distance with also the right amount of height and speed.  

Speed of release - The speed of release is also important because for a sport like badminton the speed of release must be much lower to sports such as volleyball because the projectile (shuttlecock) is much lighter than any other projectile used in sport. But the speed of release is important because even for badminton you need to make sure you use the right amount of speed for every hit to find a way to score.

Explain the activity this morning relating to projectile motion.

The activity we did this morning was that our teacher gave us a rubber band and a piece of paper and told us to try propel the piece of paper using the rubber band and that we could screw up, rip up and fold the paper any way we wanted to and try get the paper as far across the room as possible. But most of us didn't succeed in doing it the right way by tilting it up to change the angle of release and to change the height of release as well as the speed of release.
