3 TOTALLY RAD PHYSICS EQUATIONS


BOWLING: How to calculate the bowling ball’s momentum.
Total kinetic energy = kinetic energy due to translation + kinetic energy due to rotation

SKIING: How to measure your acceleration.
Acceleration= (Velocity final- Velocity initial) / Time

BUNGEE JUMPING: How to calculate what your distance from the ground will be. 
Weight = K(spring constant of cord) x height of jumper – L (cord length)

  1. There are videos over youtube from a professor of physics applying stuff like that in class experiments and if the things goes wrong he can take a lot of damage.

  2. These are all actually great. It's honestly crazy how applicable physics is in so many different real life equations, it makes me wish I'd paid more attention in physics classes.

  3. I'm no good at physics... or bowling. Never tried skiing or bungee jumping. Law of averages, not physics, tells me I'd kill myself!

  4. I don't think I'll be putting that last one to the test.

  5. I hated physics in college. It drove me to be sober.

  6. I like that people have took the time to work out some of these things.

  7. people who say blogging is a waste of time....I'll just show them your blog where I learn new stuff all the time!

  8. I can see the last one being handy. I don't know if I'll be needing it, though.

  9. I'll never need the bungee one.
