Physics 211

what is a longboard
What is a longboard
  • Explain link to skateboarding
  • Talk about their unique differences and uses (wider wheelbase, longer, heavier, drop through etc…)
  • Talk about bushings (soft vs hard when turning and their impact on you at high speeds)
potential energy
Potential Energy
  • At the top of the hill
  • As it changes to kinetic energy
momentum
Momentum
  • Pumping(gyration) http://www.stokedlongboarding.com/how-to/pumping/longboard-pumping/
  • Kicking
  • At the bottom of the hill
friction
Friction
  • Sliding(harder will slide less smoothly and break traction softer are harder to break but have a smooth slide) include info on slide gloves
  • Maximum Speed
  • Heat’s affect on the wheels
  • Different Hardness ratings
