What Happens When a Spinning Basketball is Thrown Off a Dam!

  • Опубликовано: 15 июл 2015
  • While at the Gordon Dam doing our World Record Basketball Shot we decided to see how back spin affected a basketball when dropped from 140m up. The results were way crazier than we expected!

    This video is the first time I had seen (or heard of) the Magnus effect. It was a couple of years ago, and I thought it was interesting and left it at that. I recently rediscovered How Ridiculous and I am enjoying their videos quite a bit, but I would not have given them a second glance if they hadn't included this little bit of science. Greats!

    Why it is going in forward direction ( forward direction is towards lake I have assumed ) , acc to Magnus effect or Bernoulli therom pressure towards lake side should be more than pressure on our side bcoz kinetic energy towards lake side is less ( velocity of centre of mass is downwards and due to rotation , velocity of that point is upwards , they are in opposite direction) hence KE is less ..
    Can anyone explain ?
