A unicycler's guide to physics

Watch this video and you'll better understand both some of the basics of Newtonian physics and how to ride a unicycle successfully.

It's part of a new series of videos made by MIT and Khan Academy. The videos are meant to be for K-12 students, but let's be honest. After a few years, most of us adults have forgotten this stuff and need to re-learn it, too.

  1. The Kahn Academy sure is getting a lot of national attention.  They really must be doing something right.

  2. I never made it past 5th grade, but I can still unicycle better than that kid. 
    AWD, very helpful in all that snow. 

  3. First thing they taught us to ride a motorcycle: to turn right, you push on the right handlebar. Counter-steering is counter-intuitive, but it works.
