Two new sport science books are now available from Schottenbauer Publishing, both in English and in German translation.
(German/Deutsch Title: Die Wissenschaft der Schneesport: Band 3)
The physics of snow skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and other winter Olympic events are explored in this series of books containing sport science graphs. Volume 3 focuses on the acceleration and altitude of a small round sled on a variety of ice-topped, snow-covered inclines. Most graphs contain data of the sled released freely. Comparison graphs include pushes laterally, uphill, and downhill, as well as turns, drops, lifts, and flips. Additional information is available at: SnowSportScience.Blogspot.com.
The Science of Fencing: Volume 2
(German/Deutsch Title: Die Wissenschaft des Fechtens: Band 2)
The sport of competitive Olympic fencing is an exciting and practical topic for practicing math and science skills, such as spatial orientation and coordinate transformation. Volume 2 includes graphs of the position and movement of both sword and fencer. The data in this volume are relevant to all types of fencing, including epee, foil, and sabre.
