And there’s parliament. Ok – sorry, I had to make a “Tom (Swans on Tea)” title for this one. Tom, forgive me.
Here are two great circular motion videos. First, this one is from Dale Basler. He made himself a fine little floater-type accelerometer. Better than just make it, he made a video of the accelerometer in his car going around a round about. Check it out.
So, if he is driving at a constant 10 mph, how big is the round about (traffic circle)?
Next video – more silly kids
First, I saw this one on ZapperZ’s Physics and Physicists who in turn references The Physics Buzz from Physics Central. When did Physics Central get a blog? How come I am the last to know these things? Here is the video:
Listen up video makers – this is real important. If you are going to go through this much trouble to possibly injure yourselves, why not get the video camera shot from directly above? This would it MUCH better for video analysis. Oh, and make sure that you include a meter stick or something so I can scale the video (or since you seem European, a metre stick would do).
At least the one guy was trying to set a good example by putting out the cigarette. Don’t you know those things are killers?
