# PHYSICS in CRICKET

Here are some of the situations from the INDIAN religion (Cricket).I think these can be explained using physics.So here it goes: 1.Why a fast bowler takes a long run to bowl the ball,but not the spinners? 2.When the batsman hits the fast ball what happens to the kinetic energy transferred to the bat? 3.Why the spin ball turns its angle after hitting the pitch also to reach the batsman? 4.Why the ball bounces more on a grassy pitch than others? 5.Why the wet ball skits(moves faster after pitching)? 6.Why a wicket keeper needs to wear gloves even after standing so behind the stumps and not the fielders? 7.Why a ball rolls on the ground and not drags? 8.Why the cricket ball is red in colour in test matches and white in other formats? 9.Why a six is hit by the batsmen that covers height as well as distance,why not a flat six with same distance?(mostly) 10.Why a yorker ball is difficult to hit for the batsman?

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Get your basics clear. All the answers are just the basic application of the mechanisms of Force, Friction, Momentum and impulse. Read and reread the concepts, try and understand the same, answers of the 5 questions that have been given will get at your finger tips. All the best.

Tania Parveen, It is preposterous how parents these days, blatantly encourage dishonesty. Heritage has given out homeworks so that students can get to learn things while working upon them. Homeworks are not given out to seek solutions on online platforms and copy the same on exercise books without getting to make head or tail out of it. It is okay if one doesn't get to find out the answers of such basic stuff. Let it be, please don't promote unfair means and hinder the mental growth of your son Tashin. The stance that you have taken is deplorable. Regards
