About the Class

Coefficient of Friction

Students will analyze the impact of friction on the speed and velocity of a car by changing a series of variables. How can they maintain speed while adjusting banking angles, surface conditions, and heat and temperature variants? Data collected will be used to build a track condition record similar to teams at a track. Additionally, students will compare real NASCAR team notes about track and tires for friction impact.
