Physics of Superheroes: The Death of Gwen Stacy


Recommended Posts

Dr. Jim Kakalios from the University of Minnesota does a tremendous job talking about the relationship of momentum, impulse, force and time in the context of a Superman comic book.

If you want to learn more about Dr. Kakalios, he was highlighted in a three-part interview last year as part of the Physics In Action podcast. You can download these and other past episodes from the APlusPhysics Podcast Page.


His book, The Physics of Superheroes, is also a terrific introductory-level book that examines physics from the standpoint of a variety of comic book superheroes. I highly recommend it, and have also had a number of students read it with 100% positive reviews.
