Invisible Labs: Ice Block Sledding & Asphalt Skiing

Invisible Labs: Ice Block Sledding & Asphalt Skiing

Wednesday, February 8, 2017


Invisible Labs with Craig Beals returns with two great new episodes about friction!

What better way to demonstrate the heat generated with friction, then skiing in a parking lot? We use a FLIR thermal imaging camera to show the invisible light generated in this experiment! Don't try this at home!

What about the opposite? Water actually has a much lower friction coefficient - Craig demonstrates that by using an ice block to sled! Watch:
