Two new resources from the from the Science Reference Section, Science, Technology and Business Division at the Library of Congress.
From the Scope Note:
The sports we play are potent examples, which demonstrate the influence of the laws of motion, conservation of energy, drag, inertia, friction and other scientific concepts in our daily lives.
This guide lists print resources on the scientific and mathematical principles underlying various professional sports. Selections focus on physics, but many discuss biology, chemistry, engineering, kinesiology, physiology and other scientific disciplines. Materials are chosen for high school students or casual readers. This guide is a companion to Spotlight on Sports: Exploring Science in the Games We Play.
