  • Quote from Tony Dziepak

    So a side point of the article is that one can achieve a higher throw by throwing horizontally into a (presumed frictionless) deflector box than just throwing it up in the air because of biomechanical factors. The same reasoning may hold for shot put. That is, the optimal angle of release is lower than what you learn in physics class about the cannonball because, unlike the cannon, the thrower's terminal velocity may be inversely related to angle of release due to biomechanical factors.
