COLD HARD SCIENCE: SLAPSHOT Physics in Slow Motion - Smarter Every Day 112
Tweet this: http://bit.ly/SlapShotSci - FB it: http://bit.ly/SlapShotSlow Download a free Audio book: http://bit.ly/AudibleSED Infographics are Here: http://smartereveryday.tumblr.com/ I shot the skaters with a Phantom MIRO LC320S made by Vision Research: http://www.visionresearch.com/Products/High-Speed-Cameras/Phantom-Miro-M320S/ Most speeds were around 3271 fps, but I shot the full body shot at 1200 fps. Smarter Every Day Infographics are Here: http://smartereveryday.tumblr.com/ Slow Motion sound design made by Gordon McGladdery, "A Shell In the Pit". Gordon's work is awesome, you should check it out. I like his music. http://ashellinthepit.bandcamp.com/ Hockey Stick Rigidity data plotted, and equations formatted into LaTeX format by Will Leahy: http://www.willleahy.info/ "Whippness" Graphic, and shear moment diagrams by: Emily Weddle Design http://www.emilyweddledesign.com ------------------------------- With thanks to: My friend Dr. Jeff Evans. Tenured Mechanical Engineering professor at UAH UAH Director of Hockey Operations Nick Laurila The nameless UAH Hockey player Go Chargers! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ GET SMARTER SECTION The stick rigidity data collected by Dr. Evans and I is not a formal reflection on the manufacturers because the sticks were previously used and we could not find an ASTM standard to setup our test. The possibility exists that I put the support positions too close together, which would make the values lower. The players however gave us the sticks because they were "so used they were now flimsy". Our data reflected this. If I had it to do over again I would test a new stick vs an old stick. Kettering University has done some research on this subject and we tried to setup our test apparatus similar to theirs. They applied the force to the foot of the stick. We applied the force to the center. http://www.kettering.edu/news/taking-stick-check I thought this was a great video of a product that has normalized the process by constraining the 1 inch deflection measurement. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2f7SQgn-9I Tweet ideas to me @SmarterEveryDay ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SUPPORT This episode graciously supported by several people via Subbable and Patreon.
