## Cookie_009 2 years ago In a basketball game, a player shoots a jump shot. What force actually causes the player to jump into the air? A. the floor pushing up on the player B. the player pushing down on the floor C. the push of the ball on the floor D. the push of the floor on the ball

1. Fosterthepeople

Its b

2. Mashy

well what do you think?

i thought it was b 2

4. Mashy

well. strictly speaking.. its a cause when you push down on the floor, the floor pushes on to you.. and thus that helps you shoot up imagine if there was no ground.. imagine you were in air.. falling .. now if you pushed down the leg.. would you jump?

noo

So a!

7. Mashy

yea

8. Mashy

with that medal.. my smartscore raised yayayay :D

9. Fosterthepeople

I'm so done with physics -.-

10. Mashy

lolz :D

Can you help me with one more? @Mashy

12. Mashy

m sleepy.. but shoot! quick!

If the force of a golf club on a golf ball is 200 N forward, what will the force of the ball on the club be? A. 200 N forward B. 200 N backward C. 400 N forward D. 400 N backward

14. Mashy

whats newton's third law?

action and reaction are equal and opposite.

16. Mashy

exactly.. so now can you answer?

Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that when one object exerts a force on a second object, the forces are __________________. A. equal in magnitude and equal in direction B. equal in magnitude and opposite in direction C. opposite in magnitude and equal in direction D. opposite in magnitude and opposite in direction

Thats B right??

19. Mashy

yes :P

During a softball game, a shortstop catches a ground ball. The action force is the ball pushing on the glove. What is the reaction force? A. the ground pushing on the ball B. the fielder pushing on the ball C. the glove pushing on the ball D. the ball pushing on the ground

Is that B??

22. Mashy

you shoudl be able to figure this out by now.. stop posting more question shere :P

I just wanna make sure plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

24. Mashy

ball pushing on the glove is ACTIOn what would be reaction?!

d?

26. Mashy

:O BALL PUSHING ON THE GLOVE .. is action what do you think is the reaction!???!? from where ground comes into the picture?!?!? why don't you understand action reaction pair?? if i push you is action, you push me is reaction.. if i push air is action, air pushes me is reaction!

c?

28. Mashy

yea!!
