The Science Behind Athletics Hardback
Part of the Edge Books: Science of the Summer Olympics series
Behind every long stride, high-flying pole vault and perfectly controlled discus throw, science is at work.
As a high jumper takes off, potential energy is converted into kinetic energy.
A discus thrower builds up momentum while spinning. Find out how science is involved in Olympic track and field events and how athletes take science into account in their quest for the gold medal.
