The Benefit of Antilock Brakes
pavelow posted a blog entry in Blog Having Nothing to do with Physics
Bob is barreling down the thruway in his truck at 40 m/s when a crash occurs in front of it. The driver wants to stop in the shortest distance possible. He slams on the brakes. Before the invention and implementation of the Antilock brake system, or ABS, the truck's tires would have locked up and the truck would have slid into the crash. Why? When brakes cause tires to lock up, the type of friction between the tires and road changes from static friction to kinetic friction. This decreases the total force of friction between the surfaces. Because of the decrease in force opposing the truck's motion, the truck cannot stop in a short distance. How does the ABS prevent this? The Antilock brake system prevents the tires from locking up. Therefore, the type of friction between the tires and the road is always static, the strongest type of friction. The implementation of ABS into modern cars and trucks has prevented crashes from panicked drivers, such as Bob, by allowing them to come to a complete stop in shorter distances than before possible, even better than experienced drivers using advanced braking techniques without ABS. 
When taking corners quickly, the biggest worry most drivers should have is slipping and losing control of the car. This happens when a driver takes the corner too fast. The physics of taking a flat corner depends on the equation vmax = Sqrt(mu*r*g). mu, the coefficient of static friction, is constant, as is g, the acceleration due to gravity. Therefore, a driver trying to take a corner as quickly as possible would like to make the radius of the turn as large as possible to allow for a higher vmax, keeping his car from slipping at higher speeds. But how? Doesn't a road have a defined radius? Yes, and no. The picture explains it. The arrow in the figure is what's called a "line" this is the best possible way for a car to take a corner at the highest speed. The line a regular driver would take is very curved, mimicking the road, and not allowing for a high vmax due to the small radius. A race car driver would take a better line. The racer's line is significantly less curved than the regular driver's line, making the radius much larger, allowing for a higher vmax . The racecar driver starts and ends wide of the inside and hits the apex of the turn, allowing for the least curved line possible. To conclude, when trying to take a corner quickly, the driver of the car should start out wide, hit the apex, and end wide, causing a relatively high radius and a relatively high vmax, without having the car slip off the road.

Weird things can happen in balloons. They're affected a lot by static electricity. This is why it will stick to a wall or your clothes after it has been rubbed against something else, like your hair. This happens because of the charge of the balloon and whatever you're trying to stick it to. Something that is charged negatively will stick to something that is positively charged. If you rub a balloon against your head, it becomes negatively charged because it gains electrons from your hair. This picture shows what happens when you put a charged balloon on a wall. The balloon is negatively charged. When the balloon comes in contact with the wall, the wall and the balloon both become polarized. The negative particles in the balloon are attracted to the positive particles in the wall, and also push the negative ones in the wall away, so they stick and the balloon appears to be floating all by itself. Another thing that can happen is that two balloons can repel each other. If two different balloons are rubbed against your hair or clothes or anything else that loses electrons, they will both become negatively charged by gaining electrons. If they are brought near each other, they will want to repel. But it my opinion, it is more fun to see balloons stick to things. Like this cat.
