Even More Physics of Football
Tuesday, October 28, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
The Fireside Grille, 49 Sugar Lane, Sugar Grove, IL 60554
Newton’s laws describe football players on the field just as well as carts on a track or balls rolling down ramps. Physics professor and armchair quarterback Mike Eads will discuss how an understanding of velocity, momentum, force, impulse, collisions, conservation laws, and even air resistance can lead to some interesting insights on the game.
