When a Football Defensive lineman wants to stop an opponent, he puts his shoulder into his opponent's body and lifts up. How does this affect the ability of his opponent to accelerate?
Isn't part of the opponent's forward energy trasfered upwards, thus decreasing his forward motion?
IE he started out with 10 units of force moving forward. The the offensive lineman converted 5 units of force Upwards, leaving only 5 units to continue forward progress beyon that point.
Is this a trick question?
