Title: Skateboard Science: Mid-Air Maneuvers
Url: http://www.exploratorium.edu/skateboarding/trick03.html
Creator: Doherty, Paul
Tesler, Pearl
Wanner, Noel
Publisher: Exploratorium (Organization)
Description: This entertaining mini-lesson engages the learner in physical activity to explore the effects of a twisting force (torque) on rotational motion. By mimicking the motion of a skateboarder, learners gain an intuitive understanding of the law of conservation of angular momentum. This activity is part of a larger set of materials on the science of skateboarding developed by The Exploratorium museum.
