Fruitcake Missiles

Hey, this news article gives me a great idea on another way to teach physics, especially basic intro classical mechanics. Use a fruitcake as your projectile demonstration! :)

After all, people think it is a lot more fun!

“This is the fun part of physics,” Grant said. “The calculus and the mechanics are not the fun part of physics. So I’m an ex-physics major.”
