The Physics of Drifting

Created by: Chapman K.

The Objective:

The goal of this demonstration is to expose students to the full understanding of Newton's Laws of Motion and Centripetal Force. This is enforced by using the concept of driving and drifting combined with a physical representation via a remote controlled car. Students are expected to understand the Physics, and apply them to a vehicle in motion. Students will also learn of the history, uses, and advantages of drifting in this demonstration. This demonstration aims towards students within the British Columbia Grade 12 Physics level. The most important idea that students will understand afterwards is how multiple concepts of Physics apply to a certain motion at the same time.
