Teaching Material of the Month: The Magnus Effect in Football

In June 1997, Roberto Carlos scored an infamous goal in a 35 m free kick with the ball first going off in one direction and then magically curling towards the goal. How did that happen? In this teaching unit students are introduced to the influence of gravity, of the Magnus force and of the aerodynamic resistance on the trajectory of the ball. The material is taken from the brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' and can be downloaded here:
