Post 5 Module 2 (How the length of your stick can affect your shot)

ĀCite used: https://www.real-world-physics-problems.com/physics-of-hockey.html

Before researching further, I must know how the hockey stick is used and the physics behind one to evaluate a shot. This site provided a detailed look at a slap shot and speaks about an important aspect of a shot, weight transfer. Weight transfer is the ability to translate movement into power. In this case, power goes to your stick causing it to flex. However it is harder to utilize this movement if the stick length is not properly fitted or flex is not proper. This cite also discusses about the different curves on the blade and how it benefits your shots. In conclusion, this is a great website that informs a lot about the physics found in a hockey shot.
