Don’t forget that even if you appear to be standing still, the Earth is moving around the Sun, and the Sun is moving around our galaxy. Speed it Up, Slow it Down The physics of motion is all about forces. Forces need to act upon an object to get it moving, or to change its motion. Changes in kids baseball won’t just happen on their own. So how is all of this motion measured?

Physicists use some basic terms when they look at motion. Acceleration is a twist on the idea of velocity. Velocities could either increase or decrease over time. Mass is another big idea in motion. Simple and Complex Movement There are two main ideas when you study mechanics.

The first idea is that there are simple movements, such as if you’re moving in a straight line, or if two objects are moving towards each other in a straight line. The simplest movement would be objects moving at constant velocity. Slightly more complicated studies would look at objects that speed up or slow down, where forces have to be acting. There are also more complex movements when an object’s direction is changing. These would involve curved movements such as circular motion, or the motion of a ball being thrown through the air. For such complex motions to occur, forces must also be acting, but at angles to the movement.

In order to really understand motion, you have to think about forces, acceleration, energy, work, and mass. These are all a part of mechanics.

Velocity and speed are very similar ideas, but velocity is a vector, and speed is not. Velocity is the rate of motion in a specific direction. I’m going that-a-way at 30 kilometers per hour. My velocity is 30 kilometers per hour that-a-way. Average speed is described as a measure of distance divided by time.

Speed with a direction is velocity. You will use a lot of vectors when you work with velocity. Our real world example of navigation on the ocean used velocity for every vector. Velocity is a vector measurement because it has an amount and a direction. Speed doesn’t tell the whole story to a physicist. If I tell you I’m driving north and ask you how long until we get to the city. You can’t know the answer since you don’t know my speed. That’s the velocity at a split second in time.

Above, we were talking about your speed and direction over a long period of time. Why would you need to measure a velocity at one moment? Think about the moment you drove over the manhole. The term «instantaneous» refers to something physicists call a limit. Scientists «limit» the amount of time they do the measurement. When the «limit» moves to zero, that limit is one tiny moment in time. A physicist would measure your velocity as the «limit for a period of time», zero, to get the instantaneous velocity. You speed up if the acceleration and velocity point in the same direction.

Just as with velocity, there is something called instantaneous acceleration. Instantaneous means scientists measure your acceleration for a specific moment of time. That way they can say he was accelerating at exactly this amount at this point during his trip. This type of acceleration happens when there is a constant net force applied.

Mentally, I went from March straight to May. Twelve years later and it’s still so hard. The day-to-day living gets easier with time, but when the calendar flips to April it’s like every coping mechanism I’ve developed over the years goes out the window and I feel as raw as if it happened yesterday. Last month wasn’t all bad, though.

Annie and James are continuing to thrive in softball and baseball. Annie hit a grand slam in a game, and James hit two home runs. I’m still managing Annie’s teams, and because Mike is still working from home, he’s been able to be an assistant coach on James’ team. The kids are in school and our county Covid numbers have been steadily declining. I am now fully vaccinated, and Mike gets his second jab this week. Speaking of James’ birthday, several of you have asked me if it’s time for him to choose his baseball team. Warriors, which disgusts me but I accept it.

Also, we really don’t take any of this seriously. She was hired as a bridesmaid 125 times. Finally, she had her own wedding. These glass bird feeders are the prettiest feeders I’ve ever seen. If anyone tries them, let me know what you think! After watching his sister play countless games, James has decided that he, too, wants to be a stud ballplayer.

He’s suddenly a little sponge, soaking up coaching and busting his butt to improve every chance he gets. In his first game, he had the game-winning hit and the game-saving play. The kids are finally getting rec sports back! Annie’s new softball team started practicing a week ago, and James’ new baseball team is having their first practice this week. Baseball has been called our national pastime for decades. It’s a lot of fun to play. But players are at risk for injuries from things like wild pitches, batted balls, and collisions in the field. These safety tips can help protect kids and teens from injuries while playing baseball.

Safe Baseball Gear Wearing and using the right gear can help prevent injuries. Batting helmets must be worn whenever a player is at bat, waiting to bat, or running the bases. Some leagues may even require pitchers to wear them. Helmets should always fit properly and be worn correctly. If the helmet has a chin strap, it should be fastened. If it has an eye shield or other faceguard, this should be in good condition and securely attached to the helmet.

A catcher should always wear a helmet, facemask, throat guard, full-length chest protector, athletic supporter with a cup, shin guards, and a catcher’s mitt whenever catching pitches, whether it’s in the game, in the bullpen, or during warm-ups. All players should wear athletic supporters. Baseball spikes should have molded plastic cleats rather than metal ones. Most youth leagues don’t allow spikes with metal cleats. Some leagues have rules about not using aluminum bats, which hit the ball harder than other bats. Be in good shape before starting the season.

Always warm up and stretch before practice and games. Stop training if they get hurt or feel pain and get checked by an athletic trainer, coach, doctor, or nurse before going back to training. Pitching Too much pitching can lead to serious injuries. Follow league rules for the maximum number of innings kids are allowed to throw. This is usually from four to 10 innings per week. Follow the pitch count limits recommended by U. Pitchers younger than 14 should limit total pitches to less than 1,000 per season and 3,000 per year. If pitchers feel pain in their throwing arm, they should not be allowed to pitch again until the pain goes away.

Safe Play All coaches should emphasize safe, fair play. For specific medical advice, diagnoses, and treatment, consult your doctor.
