Bikes and Cars [electronic resource]: Centripetal Acceleration

EBS Trust (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
This program considers the idea that circular motion must imply a force or component of a force toward the center of a circle, as in the Newtonian theory of how the Moon orbits the Earth. The reasons why bicyclists lean during turns, why roads are banked, and why car tires react as they do during a turn are investigated.
