One key concept is called the sequential summation of movement in which heavier objects are able to increase the speed at which smaller attached objects move (Exploratorium.edu). For this reason, the pitcher’s bodily movements are a critical component to how fast the ball will be released and thrown towards the hitter. If the pitcher’s momentum through using his legs to push off of the mound is at a greater force, so too should be the force and speed at which the ball is released as long as the arms, shoulders and hand release the ball at the optimum position during the movement.
Another key component to baseball has been the explosion of curve balls and the extent to which a ball can be thrown straight but through its overall release the ball can actually curve away from the straight-line pathway. A scientific research study tested whether a curve ball actually does curve and “the results indicated that it is possible to make a ball curve as much as 18 inches away from a straight line within a distance of 60 feet, six inches” (ProjectView.org). Through gripping the baseball a particular way and releasing the ball with the right controlled movements, a pitcher is able to make a ball travel in a straight pathway but curve after enough full revolutions have been completed. All of this is very interesting because it changes how the game can be viewed and alters how players should play the game. If careful analysis is performed and a critique of physical movements is made, science can help all players and coaches perform at the optimum level possible.

One such advancement is the development of virtual world. In my life, the biggest and most sacred connection I see with science is the distant education that I attain. Distant education is increasingly being employed as a means of imparting education to people whose tendency to attain education is hindered by the geographical distances, or busy schedule that requires them to work along with studying.
Moreover, scientific knowledge helps explain both the basic and complex elements in today's world that one needs to understand in order to function properly each and everyday.
Scientific knowledge is a must for every individual. With the importance of scientific knowledge, it is as important for science to be taught with the proper techniques and strategies.
Science has changed the way in which we breathe, live and think. It has entered each and every arena of our lives and changed it beyond comprehensible limits. Though science has been in existence since times immemorial, today, it is accessible to the common man and has influenced every aspect of life.
eering, my previous engagements have taken me on the path where I imagine remarkable possibilities with computer science, knowing a number of subfields in it where my relevant potentials may be designated properly. Understanding that computer science is a course that does not
