Dunk calculator is an important tool for the basketball players to assess how much a person need to jump to dunk a basketball. It is calculated by standing reach, which is a maximum high a person can reach while standing. This online calculator would help you to the force, speed, vertical jump, hang time and take off velocity by providing the height of the rim, standing reach and extra reach of dunk.
If the height of the rim is 10 feet and the height you can reach while your feet is in ground is 8 feet and extra reach for the dunk is 6 inch calculate the basketball vertical jump height you need to touch the rim?
v = 10 - 8
= 2 * 12 (Converting Feet to Inch: 1ft = 12 inch)
v = 24 in
d = 24 + 6
= 30 in
Therefore, v = 24 in and d = 30 in
