The Real Physics of Roller Coaster Loops
The Real Physics of Roller Coaster Loops

If you flip through the pages of just about any physics textbook, you will probably find a picture of a roller coaster loop illustrating the concept of centripetal acceleration. Textbook problems often portray loops that […] Read More

Physics: Kinetic and potential energy in a roller coaster
Physics: Kinetic and potential energy in a roller coaster

Basic underlying principles of a roller coaster start with one of the more fundamental laws of all physics and that is the law of conservation of energy. When we start to talk about the law […] Read More

How Much Weight Can a Soda Can Hold? Hydraulic Press Test

(Intro Music) Welcome to the “Hydraulic Press Channel”! Empty soda cans are surprisingly strong. You can even stand on top of one if there isn’t any dent. But how strong they are that’s what we’re […] Read More

Brewstew – Stuck On A Roller Coaster

Alright, so not too long ago I got stuck on a rollercoaster And for me it’s a big deal, because when I was a kid I had two reoccurring nightmares One was having Harry and […] Read More

Pullstud Bolts
Pullstud Bolts

The pullstud bolt is the only part connecting the machining center and the tooling. It is one of the most important components because this one bolt retains the tooling and it must stand up to […] Read More

Module 1 – Lecture 3 – Dynamic Force Analysis of Mechanisms
Module 1 – Lecture 3 – Dynamic Force Analysis of Mechanisms

In the previous lecture, we have discussed the method of solving dynamics force analysis problems of plane mechanisms. We have seen, the dynamic force analysis problems, which means, when the complete motion of a system […] Read More

Calculus III: Two Dimensional Vectors (Level 12 of 13) | Static Equilibrium
Calculus III: Two Dimensional Vectors (Level 12 of 13) | Static Equilibrium

Two Dimensional Vectors, level 12. In this video we will go over how to solve static equilibrium problems. In general when an object is stationary or at rest we say it is in a state […] Read More

Dry friction I – introduction with an example
Dry friction I – introduction with an example

In our lectures on statics so far you would notice that we have been taking the force on a body when it is on a surface mostly to be perpendicular to the surface By doing […] Read More
