In speaking about American football, the position called quarteback, is the one most often having the responsibility of throwing the football to one of his receiving players. In doing so certainly distance is an important factor but that alone is not sufficient. Accuracy combined with distance can make or break a football play. At the professional football level, a coach can expect the quarterback to be able to throw a football at between 45 to 60 yards with accuracy.

how does distance affect accuracy

User Avatar

depends on angle and time football is accelerated (or distance it is accelerated over) please specify

My son is 9 year old and he has thrown the ball 33 yards in the air.

i don't think gloves helps with distance, but accuracy.

Projectile motion as the football is thrown, forces as the football is thrown as well.

Yes wind affects the motion of football that is thrown. Apart from the motion of the football is also affected by gravity. The various laws of motion applies when football is thrown.

A football spirals based on the way it is thrown. It will be a perfect spiral if the football is thrown with the spin on the exact axis of the ball.รŠ

Quarterbacks like to spiral a football when they throw a pass in order to increase their precision and accuracy. This can also help with distance in some cases.

you need passing accuracy..shooting accuracy....skill...

User Avatar

yes alot of extra distance and a little more accuracy (at greater distances)

Before it is thrown is has potential energy and when it is thrown and moving it has kinetic energy

The average velocity of a thrown football is from 40 to 60 MPH. Although there has been faster velocities recorded.

to be accurate with shots/passes

The answer is 45 degrees. If given the same velocity, and thrown at say...10 degrees, to the ground, then the distance it would travel is the same as the distance it would travel if it were thrown 80 degrees. Complementary angles end up at the same distance horizontally.

um how bout trying to see how different weather can effect the length of a thrown football. you would be more accurate with a mechanical throwing arm for distance in rain or snow

American football is thrown, international football is played like soccer

There is more force behind the egg thrown further distance than the egg thrown from small distance. That and gravity acceleration.
