Sliding and Toppling [electronic resource]: Modeling Forces

EBS Trust (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
This program discusses how geometry, gravity, and the coefficient of friction determine whether an object slides or topples. The mathematical models behind these phenomena are presented through examples such as ice hockey and skiing. The relationship between sliding and a body's velocity as an exercise in energy conservation is explored as well.
