Physics in driving

ally_vanacker

203 views

I recently passed my road tests and have had many experiences while driving with the physics we have talked about in class. For example, when I took my test it was snowing and the roads were very icy. This made it harder to drive because the conditions of the road created less friction on the tires making it harder to stop. Another thing that has proven to be true while driving is Newton's third law which is that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. I'm nothing close to being a good driver and many people have asked me how I even passed my road test due to the fact that my moms mini van has been subject to Newton's third law. I've hit many curbs and piles of snow but they also hit me back and have left a few new dents in the car!
