How does friction, velocity, and acceleration apply to volleyball?

<3AMBER

Think of what happens when your hand comes in contact with the ball. Why doesn't your hand just slip off the ball? Consider changes of direction and speed of the ball.

Think of your movements around the volleyball court during the game, the traction you need to change your own speed and direction.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
