Netons first and second laws apply to bowling. The first law appies to bowling because the bowling ball is stil untill a person picks it up and throws it. It also applies because the ball is being acted upon by an out side force, the person throwing it and friction after the ball is thrown. The second law applies to bowling because the speed and acceleration of the ball depends on the force pushing or pulling the ball.

## the preimeter of the bowling lane

The preimeter of the bowling lane is qutie large. Its an astounding 130 feet from the fowl line to the first pin with gutters. Isnt that large. The preimeter without gutters from the fowl line to the first pin is 126.75 feet.

### The Area of the Bowling Lane

The area of the lane with out the gutters is much larger than the preimeter. The area of the lane is 207 squared feet. That is a big increase from the preimeter.. That means that the preimeter with gutters is about 2/3 as large as the area without gutters.

#### Common math in bowling

We use every day math in bowling. We use addition division and mulitiplicition. Addition for adding up the scores for the total score. Division for finding your average, (total number of pins divided by total number of games.) Multiplication is used for strikes and spares. Double pins for next ball (spare) and double pins for next two balls (strike.)
