Transcript of Go Figure Physics of Figure Skating

Physics in Figure Skating History Skating was born in Europe Figure Skating Association Fact Men and Women Angular Momentum

Radius from center X speed Newton's First Law of Motion Newton's Second Law of Motion Ten Concepts Newtons First Law of Motion
Newtons Second Law of Motion
Angular Momentum
Rotational Speed
Kinetic Energy
Gravitational Potential Energy
Projectile Motion
Rotational Inertia
Center of Mass Friction Ice Cause Angular Momentum Rotational Speed Pull hands close together Stretches hands and legs for stability for landing Kinetic Energy Kinetic Energy= 1/2 mass + velocity squared Gravitational Potential Energy When landing a jump Kinetic Energy turns to Gravitational Potential Energy Projectile Motion Greater velocity going into the jump will allow to get up higher S=D/T Rotational Inertia Decrease when skater is in a jump allowing the skater to spin Center of Mass Know where your center of mass to keep yourself from falling Video Answer to Driving Question The skater needs to know what types of moves to do and the speed they need to go. Skaters need to know where their limit is or else they will fall Driving Question How does physics play into
Figure Skating
