video: Tewarit Yookung Khanmolee
model: lookang
assumptions made:
video fps =230

basketball is 0.27 m diameter

Technique used:

a moving reference frame to help compensate or account for the shaky camera
video detected as 30 fps, i adjusted it until the value of acceleration is roughly -9.81 m/s^2
