Synopsis

Win That Sprint Forces in Sport by Angela Royston

How does ice skating work? Why can some sprinters run faster than others? What makes a ball bounce? Covering lots of different sports, including athletics sports such as sprinting and long-distance running, ball games such as tennis and football, and winter sports such as ice-skating and bobsleigh, Win that Sprint takes a fun look at forces in sport. While learning about forces you will find that you also find out the answers to many questions that you have asked yourself about sport, and more. This Feel the Force series shows how forces and motion work in the world around us, in a set of high-interest situations. Each book includes three simple activities or investigations for readers to try. Overlays over large photos, plus diagrams, show how forces are acting in a given situation. Topics covered in the series include basic pushes, pulls and friction, air resistance, gravity, mass, weight and springs.
