Bikes and cars

Author: Timothy David; David Felber; Shotlist (Firm); Films for the Humanities (Firm)
Publisher: Princeton, NJ : Films for the Humanities & Sciences, ©2000.
Series: Math in a box.
Edition/Format:   VHS video : VHS tape   Visual material : English
Summary:
This program considers the idea that circular motion must imply a force or component of a force toward the center of a circle, as in the Newtonian theory of how the Moon orbits the Earth. The reasons why bicyclists lean during turns, why roads are banked, and why car tires react as they do during a turn are investigated.
