The Physics of Throwing a Football.
-Dylan Gayken ​
The Physics-
​ ​ There is a reason a football is shaped the way it is. Its curve makes it go farther without the air resistance slowing it down. When a Qaurterback throws the ball he also flicks his wrist making the football do a spiral making it less air resisant.

The projectile motion is the main key of throwing a football. Without gravity the football would keep going in a straight line never coming back down the earth. so the quarterback has to angle his throw higher so he can throw it farther making it to his reicever.
