Applied physics

April 18, 2012

A friend sends a story about a professor who used physics to get out of paying a traffic ticket.

The paper outlining his argument is available here. I like the abstract (“The paper was awarded a special prize of $400 that the author did not have to pay to the state of California.”), and the paper itself (pdf) is a fun read. The physics involved is not beyond a high-school level.
