Under Pressure - the physics of the football (iStage 3)

Unter Druck - Die Physik des Fußballs (iStage 3)

Whether it is the World Cup, the European Football Championship or the Champions League - football enthuses people all around Europe at any time. In the teaching unit ‘Under Pressure’ it is all about the ball and the impact of the air in it. In experiments students determine among other things how to measure the weight of the air inside the ball and how the pressure inside the ball influences its bounce on the ground.

The teaching unit is taken from the brochure ‘iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching’ from the topic ‘ball’. The complete brochure can be ordered free of charge via mail ( or downloaded. It was developed by 20 teachers from 15 countries around Europe. The project was proudly supported by SAP.

Authors: Kirsten Biedermann (DE), Anders Florén (SE), Philippe Jeanjacquot (FR), Dionysis Konstantinou (GR), Corina Toma (RO)

All additional material for the brochure can be found here.
