Physics of Motocross
Transcript of Physics of Motocross
that can create negative
or positive changes One example of how systems affect systems is how the system of friction, and how the rider uses it, affects the system of time. When a rider uses the "bubba scrub" it allows him to reach his target faster because he spends less time in the air, hence creating a faster lap time. This creates a positive change. Another example of systems affects systems is when the system of inertia affects the systems of the rider. For example, when the rider is in the air he can use the inertia of the bike to affect his position, to create a safe, effective landing. My last example of how systems affects systems is how inertia affects a skater. When a skater is riding and the wheel hits a small rock, the board stops, but the rider wants to continue moving forward. The rider will then often fall off the board. This creates a negative change. Conclusion In conclusion, I've learned a lot about how a rider is affected by physics, but also how they might use science to help them succeed. And I think it's kinda cool to now be able to say when riding with my brothers or watching the pros, "So that's why it works!"
