Plan to come to this month’s STEM Cafe: The Physics of Football at O’Leary’s Restaurant & Pub this Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 from 6:30 – 8:30pm for some interesting discussion. Newton’s laws describe football players on the field just as well as carts on a track or balls rolling down ramps. Physics professor and armchair quarterback Mike Eads will discuss how an understanding of velocity, momentum, force, impulse, collisions, conservation laws, and even air resistance can lead to some interesting insights on the game of football.
