Cycling Physics

If nothing else, this physics teacher is certainly very resourceful, and not to mention, probably in a very good physical shape as well!

On Thursday Davis will be trying a new kind of demonstration: he will spend the entire teaching day — 7 hours — pedaling his bicycle on rollers. The purpose is to give his students a visual lesson in work, power, energy, angular momentum, torque, and other topics.

Good luck to him, and hopefully, his students do learn a bit of physics from all this.
