Presentation Transcript

  1. The physics behind longboarding Steven Cassell 11/9/2013 Physics 211

  2. 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)

  3. Potential Energy • At the top of the hill • As it changes to kinetic energy

  4. Momentum • Pumping(gyration) http://www.stokedlongboarding.com/how-to/pumping/longboard-pumping/ • Kicking • At the bottom of the hill

  5. 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
