Pysics of Baseball: Rounding the bases

(music) Jahred Adelman (Assistant Professor, Physics):
According Newton’s laws we have to apply extra forces the more we want to change direction
while running. It is not possible to keep running and make very sharp turns. That’s
why we don’t run the bases in straight lines, but instead literally round the bases in curved
paths in order to get from one base to the other as quickly as possible. (music)
