Newton's Third Law Newton's third law says that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. In guy's lacrosse, collisions are just apart of the game. No matter how hard one guy checks the other, they will both feel the same amount of force.

Newton's First LawAn object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. A lacrosse ball during the faceoff remains still until a stick moves it.

Newton's Second LawNewton's second law states that force = mass x acceleration, in lacrosse, the force of the ball in the air is equal to the mass of the ball times the acceleration of the ball.

Physics in Lacrosse

PassingYour stick and arms act as a series of levers. Top hand pushes a force on the shaft of the stick, while the bottom pulls, acting like a lever.

ShootingShooting is basically the same as passing, just with more power. By creating force in the upper and lower hands on the shaft, a greater torque is generated and the ball can be thrown farther and faster.

Paul Rabil has the fastest shot: 111mph

CradlingCradling helps the ball stay in the stick when you are moving. The player moves his wrists back and forth to keep the ball in the stick by using centrifugal force.
