The running joke on a soccer field after you head a particularly hard ball is, "Man, I wonder how many brain cells that killed?" Well, our experiment won't tell you how many brain cells you just killed, but it will tell you how much force hit your head. We taped an X250-1 to a size five soccer ball so we could figure that out.
The experiment determines the resulting impact forces when a size five soccer ball is dropped ten feet onto one's head.
We taped an X250-1 to a size five soccer ball, we then stood on the roof and had a soccer player stand ten feet below the ball. We dropped the ball and the soccer player proceeded to head it back to us. We repeated this process ten times.
Config.txtPRODUCT_ID = X250-1
After we analyzed all of the data, we came to the conclusion that a soccer ball dropped from ten feet in the air hits your head with an average force of 2283 Lbs during a brief period of 21 milliseconds. However, this is just dropping the ball from a roof. We realize that during a game when someone kicks the ball and it hits your head, the force (and pain) will be much greater.
