Abstract:Through the use of a catapult device designed to model a human’s basketball shot, optimum angles and forces were found for people of all heights. To apply findings to the game, optimum parabolic arcs were derived. The arcs were placed in front of a video camera, providing a cheap and effective way for players to train.
