Newton's Law shown in bull riding
Transcript of Newton's Law shown in bull riding
To stay on the bull the rider must predict the bulls action to anticipate and prepare for which direction he must lean in order to remain stable on the bull.
The bull is stopping it's forward motion by thrusting it's hind legs in the air.
Newton's 1st law
The bull uses Inertia to try to get the rider off it's back. The bull goes back and forth to throw the rider off balance: like a roller coaster with no brakes.
Newton's 2nd Law
The heavier the rider, the more difficult it is for the bull to remove him from it's back. But the lighter the rider, the better advantage the bull has.
This means the bull requires more force and acceleration to get rid of the rider.
How to play
The rules are simple.
Goal : stay on the bull for 8 seconds
Requirements: -one hand must stay in contact with the bull
- Your other hand must not touch you or the bull. It must remain in air
- the clock stops when your hand that is attached to the bull comes lose, you fall off, or your free hand touches the bull.
Score: you are scored according to how long you stayed on the bull and you get another score on the quality of your bull's performance. ( 0- 100 points for both)
Newton's 3rd Law
The force that the bull exerts on the rider, is counteracted by the rider's reaction by moving in the opposite direction. As Newton's law states, whenever object A and B interact with each other, they exert forces upon each other.
