This is the portal for a collection of 10 short videos that explore the science behind professional football. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the videos aim to provide engaging real-world examples of key concepts in physical science, including Newton's Laws, momentum and its conservation, Law of Inertia, vectors, center of mass, projectile motion, and geometric shapes. NFL players are featured in each video, with motion displayed in archived game clips and newly-created video captured with a super high-speed Phantom Cam. Physicists appear in each video to explain the concepts being demonstrated and clarify the connections to physics.
