The Physics Behind a Curveball – The Magnus Effect

What makes a curveball curve? How do soccer players (or football players internationally) bend the ball in the air? Physics! It’s specifically called The Magnus Effect, “the commonly observed...

A physical demonstration of gravitational waves

...objects and the waves that they produce. There’s no way to see how one causes the other, and I think we can fix that with an actual physical demonstration of...

Observing the angle of repose with DIY physics devices

...all exhibit this property. Science teacher Bruce Yeany demonstrates the angle of repose with his DIY physics devices full of sand. See how he made them in the 2016...

The Stacked Ball Drop (and Supernovas) – Physics Girl

...Physics Girl Dianna Cowern demonstrates the momentum transfer between two larger objects into a smaller object. Watch as the compression of the basketball and bouncy ball both springboard the golf...

Rock Swing Cup & more DIY playground physics

Next time you’re on the swings, think about what it might be like if you were swinging on the moon, free from air resistance. AP Physics teacher Jared Keester...

The Electric Sausage: A static electricity demonstration

Perhaps you’ve experimented with static electricity by using a balloon, paper clippings, your hair, a pencil, a plastic bag, or a Van de Graaff Generator… but have you...

A Basic Demonstration of Optical Cloaking

Above, A Basic Demonstration of Optical Cloaking. Cloaking is a term for hiding an object from view at specific frequencies, but evidently one can cloak things DIY-style with  four mirrors...
