HOW HAS SCIENCE EFFECTED SPORT? HOW HAS SCIENCE EFFECTED SPORT? The development in new materials allows scientists to design and create new items for sporting activities. For instance new tennis rackets are no longer made of wood but made of fibre glass, Kevlar and titanium, these are products of polymers. We use these products because they are light and strong! They are also easy to transfer and can be mass produced.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO WE USE THAT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED IN SCIENCE? WHAT EQUIPMENT DO WE USE THAT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED IN SCIENCE? Bikes Rackets Cricket pads Football boots Shin pads And many more!?!
MATERIALS USED TO MAKE THESE PRODUCTS? MATERIALS USED TO MAKE THESE PRODUCTS? Fibre glass Carbon Fibre TitaniumKevlar And others!
ARE THESE NEW PIECES OF EQUIPMENT USEFUL? ARE THESE NEW PIECES OF EQUIPMENT USEFUL? Yes they are because: Can be mass produced Make the game more of a challenge Increases skill level of players, this in turn can increase the amount of money made through the sport because more people would be watching.
Do they have disadvantages? Do they have disadvantages?NO
