How to use "Ricochet" in context?

The word "ricochet" comes from the French word "ricochet" which means to rebound. When you throw a stone or a ball, it will likely go off in a straight line. If you hit the object hard enough, the energy in the motion will send the object flying in a different direction. This is because the object acquires more energy as it moves away from the center of the motion. The stone may fly off in a different direction than you threw it, and this is called a "ricochet.
