Physics of Iron Man 3

One scene in the movie is of Tony Stark's house being blown up by helicopters. The really exciting part isn't the house bursting into flames, but when Tony is being dragged down to the ocean floor by debre from the house. This got me thinking, would Tony and the Iron Man suit sink on its own or stay afloat? In order to stay afloat or have neutral bouyancy, the suit would h

Physics of Swimming

Swimming can be used in a variety of ways. Some use it for recreation while others use it for sport and competition. Regardless of how it is used there are many forms of physics that are used. The video below demonstrates and explains the various aspects of physics in swimming... With this video you can see all the different aspects of physics ( acceleration momentum, force, velocity and Newtons Laws of Motion, as well as drag coefficients) that are involved in the simple act of

Mountain Biking with Physics

There are a lot of things that go into mountain biking. Anyone can demonstrate physics of a bicycle just by riding one, even on straight and level ground. The gyroscopic action of the wheels can help keep you balanced while riding. But more important to a mountain biker physics can keep you from doing something too stupid. There are different styles of mountain biking, but the one I am going to focus on is downhill mountain biking. This style of biking consists of riding downhill as the title

Is Iron Man possible?

I've always been a big fan of the Marvel comic Iron Man. Its so cool how Tony Stark can put his extremely advanced suit on and do amazing things like save the world. But with all of these amazing feats, how much of the Iron Man suit actually follow the laws of physics, and more importantly, how does he fly? Through research I have found the answers to these questions. The idea of the Iron Man suit is very much plausible and somewhat realistic. The problem, however, is the technology available
