Free YouTube Videos Demonstrate Snow Sport Science Models in Lab

Two new YouTube videos from Schottenbauer Publishing demonstrate the science of snow sports in laboratory conditions. Coordinated with graphs from Volume 4 of The Science of Snow Sports, these videos demonstrate the motion of various wood blocks, a cylinder, a rubber ball, and plastic skier models on a High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic surface. Both natural inclines and curved surfaces are modeled.

Additional data on snow sports can be found in the following science lab manuals from Schottenbauer Publishing:
