This website, produced by the Exploratorium Museum, analyzes the physics of skateboarding in great detail. It goes into many different 'tricks' and the effect of materials and design on the behavior of the skateboard. Learners will explore how the sport of skateboarding is governed by the principles of momentum, gravity, friction, and centripetal force.
