S1104: The Physics of Phootball in Splash! Fall 2010 (Nov. 13 - 14, 2010)
We will look at the sport of football through the lens of Newtonian mechanics. We will use videos of Stanford Cardinal football games to look at the flight path of thrown and kicked balls, and the physics of tackles. Projectile motion and collisions will be emphasized. This class will be interactive, with some time spent outside running around. I will put heavy emphasis on what constitutes safe play and how physics can instruct us on ways to avoid injuries.
