The arc in Basketball is when you shoot the ball into the hoop. When you shoot it should be an arc shape. When it's an arc shape there is a higher chance of the basketball to go in the hoop.

3 point made from beyond the arc

No matter where you shoot from, after the three point arc it just counts as a three pointer.

.free throw .shot made inside the 3-pt arc .a shot made outside the 3-pt arc.......

Using only this ten-penny nail and a piece of string, I am now going to scribe an arc on this wooden panel. The high arc of the basketball carried it accurately to it's intended target.

it's where the 3 point line starts

outside the arc or free throw area

It could be many things! 1. the arc of your shot, which is the point from when the ball leaves your hand to the point it reaches the basket. If your arc isn't right, your shot could be too flat or too high and looped and shooting percentage is lowered. 2. the 3-point line is often refered to as the arc in basketball, including in the NBA/WNBA. If you score from outside the 'arc', you get three points instead of two. Hope I helped! :)

Thay are three points, or three-pointers

Two points for a bucket inside the arc, 3 points for shots made outside the 3 point arc and one point for a free throw

uh, like light brown with colored lines to mark the key and 3 point arc

Shots from behind the free-throw line are 1 point each. Shots from inside the arc are 2 points each, and shots scored outside the arc are 3 points each.

23 feet 9 inches from the center of the basket to behind the arc.

The side of the court that is shaped like an arc, and right inside the three-point line.

The chances of the ball just skimming over the rim and making it in the hoop is very unlikely. If your shot has a good arc on it, the ball could easily make it in the hoop, whether it be with or without the backboard.

You want your hand and elbow positioned underneath the basketball so you can push the ball in an upward arc allowing the ball to drop into the hoop instead of flying through the air in a flat trajectory.

This may be a tricky question. How long is the 3 point line. If you straightened out the High School 3 point line (arc), it would measure over 72 feet 6.53 inches. The length of the NCAA or NBA court is 94 feet to give perspective. My 2nd answer: 19 feet 9 inches from the center of the goal to the far side of the arc for High School basketball, 20 feet 9 inches for NCAA, and 23 feet 9 inches from behind the arc to the center of the goal for NBA basketball courts.

You might be referring to the white arc inside the paint underneath the basket. That's the "restricted area" if a player tries to take a charge while in that area, he will be called for a blocking foul rather than taking a charge.

Arc is when, instead of shooting the ball straight at the basket, one shoots the ball more vertically and let's the ball fall into the basket. The purposes of arc on a shot are to create backspin on the ball, prevent the defense from blocking a shot, and to eliminate the reliance on the backboard and give one a more diverse variety of shots.

an arc is a segment of a circle. If the arc subtends a full angle of 360 degrees, then the arc is a circle; but this is a special case of an arc.
