1 Review
Dr. Armenti puts to rest a number of popular sports-related misconceptions and accounts for phenomena that, for many, have been a source of wonder since childhood. Why does a golf ball have dimples? How can a sailboat travel almost directly into the wind? Readers will find the answers eye-opening. For general science readers and students and teachers of either physics or sports.
