CIRCUS

Circus Physics: Conservation of Energy

  • Aired: 06/01/2010
  • 02:08
  • Rating: NR
The aerial acrobatics of the Russian Barre routine require exquisite balance, timing, and years of training. That's not enough though; conservation of energy plays a big role as well. This video explores the basics of the three common forms of energy: potential, kinetic and elastic.
