Drumming

Like a sound wave, the waves produced by drums are longitudinal. The vibration produced when a drum is hit creates pressure waves in the air. These pressure waves describe the sound. The more the drum head bends, the volume of sound increases, a higher frequency is created and the amplitude if affected. Pitches of drums range from low frequency basses to high frequency pitches. Like a speaker which amplifies sound through the air, noise from the drums travel to our ears because of the sound vibr

Airsoft

Airsoft guns demonstrate many basic concepts of physics and wouldn't be able to work the way they do without physics. These guns include velocity, kinetic energy, impact energy, length, diameter and more. The first factor that comes to mind when range is involved includes velocity. Velocity with airsoft guns determines how powerful the gun is and how much damage it could potentially do. This shows how energy ad power is also involved with airsoft guns. Many types of physics equations can be used

Jamming

As much as people listen to music for the beauty and sound, no one really sees the physics behind music and sound waves. Sound is an example of a mechanical wave. A mechanical wave is a wav that propagates as an oscillation of matter, and transfers energy through a medium. mechanical waves transfer energy only. Sound is a wave created by vibration moving from one medium to another. These vibrations are the reason why we can hear sounds such as music. With music speakers, am object vibrates in th

BMW's

The amount of physics in all types of cars and in all types of categories is overwhelming. But when it comes to power, smaller cars seem to be the faster moving ones. BMW's are small luxury cars which most people may not look past the looks and understand he amount of physics they move with. BMW's horsepower ranges from 280 HP-335HP, all depending on the type of BMW model. Horsepower is a physics term which is measured in watts. Watts are the unit of power and one horsepower is equal to 745.699

Christmas Lights

Christmas lights are a perfect example which physics is wildly incorporated in. The lights that are wrapped around Christmas trees and houses use power and energy and are measured in watts. They are circuits which means that current flows within them to keep them lit up. These Christmas light circuits begin working when one end is being plugged into an outlet to begin the flow of energy. But the cool thing about these lights is that if one bulb goes out, the rest of the string is able to remain

Skiing

To begin, down hill skiing requires high speed motion and quick turns on the slopes. skiers gain speed by converting potential energy into kinetic energy while working their way down the hill. Based on how heavy a skier is, it will determine the speed/velocity in which they are moving at. A heavier skier typically means that they will have a greater speed compared to a smaller skier (less mass). When a skier travels down a hill, the friction between the skis and slopes can seem very little becau

Race Car Driving

Driving cars in the first place requires a huge amount of physics but race car driving includes even more. Because in many cases of car races, the end result happens to be a crash or collision. Collisions between cars demonstrates physics because such collisions can consist of elastic and inelastic collisions. An inelastic collision is when kinetic energy is not conserved, in contrast to an elastic collision where the total kinetic energy after the collision is the same as the total kinetic ener

Diving

The sport of diving requires lots of focus, strength, athleticism and physics. Unless you take a deeper look into diving, you may not realize how much of a role physics plays in it. Diving first of all has to do with velocity/speed, distance, time and acceleration; which are all components of kinematics and include variables used to solve kinematic equations in physics. The speed at which the diver is moving can be used to determine the time it takes for them to go from the diving board to the s

Hockey & Physics

There is physics apart of all sports. An example of a sport with some of the most obvious characteristics of physics includes one of the most physical sports there is, hockey. To begin, the speed involved with hockey plays a key role in how the sport is played and speed is also a large part of physics. Momentum: "The quantity of motion of a moving body, measured as a product of its mass and velocity." Hockey also requires momentum and the weight of the players is what keeps them moving on the ic

Amusement Parks

You wouldn't think, but there is physics everywhere and somewhere where there is more physics than people would think includes amusement parks. Roller coasters and amusement park rides require so much physics in order to keep things safe and secure. When a roller coaster is going down a hill at speeds over 50 miles per hour, it is because there is a conversion of potential energy to kinetic energy when the coaster moves down the hill. Also, when the carts are speeding down the tracks and around

Physics behind riding a bike

Exercise and physical activity require tons of physics, and bike riding consists of one which includes all different aspects of physics. Riding a bike first of all takes energy and force when going up and down hills, going around corners and even just traveling forward. Peddling up a hill specifically, requires greater energy rather than when the bike moves down a hill because gravity takes care of the object moving downward. Bike riding also uses the concepts from kinematic equations such as ve

Gymnastics

Gymnastics is a sport which like every other, is full of physics. Each event, bars, beam, vault and floor, all include examples that prove how physics is literally everything. But the balance beam specifically includes an event within gymnastics that denonstrates a range of physics. While a gymnast tries to balance on a beam, gravity is the key component. Because gravity pulls downward, it makes it more difficult for a person to be able to balance without falling. Performing on the balance beam

Football

Any sport using any type of ball revolves completely around physics and football includes a sport that has lots of characteristics of physics. When a football is thrown, it is done so at a certain angle and whatever angle it was thrown at will create a certain speed and distance that the ball will travel. A ball thrown at 45 degrees will result in a longer distance compared to another football being thrown at a degree such as 20. Football also demonstrates physics because both throwing and catch

Flyers

Because there is physics in everything, physics occurs in cheerleading. Jumps are one example and flying is another key example. When a cheerleader is thrown into the air, it connects to physics because of gravity and the impact that gravity has on different masses. For example, when an individual is tossed upward, they will obviously fall back down at a certain point while they're in the air because gravity pulls objects to the center of the earth. The greater the mass, the faster the object i
