Physics of Sports

Presented by: 
Raymond Penner Vancouver Island University
Date: 
Thursday 30th November 2017 - 16:30 to 17:10
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
Sporting activities provide great examples of physics in action. Participants and observers are often intrigued by the design or motion of a particular piece of sporting equipment. Physicists are intrigued by these same questions. Topics that will be considered in the presentation will include the behavior of a curling rock, the design of a clubhead in the game of golf, and a look at the physics behind the variety of pitches thrown in the game of baseball.
