Description:

This entertaining mini-lesson engages the learner in physical activity to explore the effects of a twisting force (torque) on rotational motion. By mimicking the motion of a skateboarder, learners gain an intuitive understanding of the law of conservation of angular momentum. This activity is part of a larger set of materials on the science of skateboarding developed by The Exploratorium museum.
