She's better at math than at English, and I don't agree with her conclusion exactly, but it's interesting.

Easier said than done.

The little stick guy around 1.5 minutes is NOT CARVING. She should have left that off. More confusing than anything. Didn't have the patience to listen to the whole thing.

If they can make skiing sound this boring, think what they can do with topic of sex. :D

 

I believe they can be the most effective method of birth control ever. :eek

Not a great way to teach skiing, I think, though I could be wrong. It might work for MIT Alpine, for all I know. On the other hand, the formulas are interesting, if rudimentary.

This looks like a high school science project. They got the (high school physics) formulae correct.

However, they Left off air friction(MIT would have included it:D), did not note the difference in friction between cleanly carved turns and sideways skiing, did not note how simply tipping a ski and loading it centrally will make it carve an arc, etc.

They got that perfect turns are cleanly carved though (don't let those smeary new-schoolers tell you any different) :duck:

the .be extension domain is Belgium.  Just say'n.  Katie does appear to be on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology team, though.

That's about as lame a project as my science projects. Other kids were curing cancer, I was studying the difference in the sound between rubber and nylon basketballs. Seriously.
