When you kick a soccer ball, multiple things happen. First of all, your leg is putting kinetic (or “movement”) energy into the ball. The formula for this is: Here the kinetic energy equals one half of the mass of your leg multi-plied by the velocity of your leg, as it hits the ball, squared. Another thing that happens when you kick the ball is that the ball deforms.
Newton's Second Law of Motion. A soccer ball will stay in motion when it is kicked unless acted on by an unbalanced force. Friction occurs because of the electromagnetic forces between charged particles of the grass and the skin of the soccer ball rubbing against each other.

Physics on kicking a soccer ball. The amount of speed within the contact of the foot and the ball is going to change how far the ball goes. the faster you make contact the farther it will go. the slower you make contact the less far it will go.
Physics of Kicking a Soccer Ball. When you kick a soccer ball your leg puts kinetic energy in the ball. Also when you kick a soccer ball the ball deforms for an instant. The energy going into the collision is the energy of your foot plus some stored energy in the ball.
The Magnus effect plays a huge role in justifying the behavior of a soccer ball in flight. The Magnus effect and the effect of gravity and air resistance have also been used to explain the nature of the trajectory a ball takes and how players can use such principle to improve on their skills.

When we kick the ball, the force we apply to it causes it to accelerate from a speed of 0 to a speed of dozens of kilometers per hour. When the ball is released from the foot, it begins to decelerate (negative acceleration) due to the force of friction that is exerted upon it (as we observed in the previous example).
The Physics Of Soccer – The Magnus Effect. When a soccer player kicks a ball off-center it causes the ball to spin. The direction and speed of the spin will determine how much the ball curves during flight. It's the same principle as a curve ball in baseball.
