Title: WFU Physics Demo Video: Boomerang (Outside and Inside)
Url: http://physics.wfu.edu/demolabs/demos/2/2c/2C2055.html
Creator: Matthews, G. Eric
Publisher: Wake Forest University
Description: This video demonstrates the operation of a boomerang. A boomerang is shaped such that air passing over it will cause it to lift and turn. If thrown correctly, it will return to the thrower. The video is part of a collection of demonstration videos put together by the physics department at Wake Forest University.
