The Physics of Baseball

  • Harold Washington Library 400 South State Street Chicago, IL, 60605 United States (map)

Dr Alan Nathan spent a career doing experimental nuclear physics, where he studied the high-speed collisions of subatomic particles. These days he spends his time working on the physics of baseball, studying the not-so-high-speed collisions of baseballs with bats, among other things. And believe it or not, many of the same principles that apply to the former also apply to the latter. He will provide a flavor for that in this talk by telling us about some of the interesting physics apparent to him each and every time he watches a game.
