Podcast: The Physics of Snowboarding


We're right in the middle of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, so for this week's podcast I decided to talk to Physics Central's resident snowboarding expert, James Riordon (also known as Buzz Skyline), about the physics behind this awesome sport. Go listen to it!

You can also read Buzz's post about the 1440 Triple Cork right here.

There is a TON of physics in the winter Olympic games and you can learn all about it via this amazing video series produced by the National Science Foundation and NBC. There's a series about engineering in the Olympics as well.
