Item Picture
written by Rhett J. Allain
Can a vehicle can ride around the inside vertical wall of a cylinder?  The video analysis in this item explore the physics behind the Wall of Death.  The zip file contains the Wall of Death blog entry, a video of a car riding the wall, and a Tracker video analysis file.    A discussion of the physics for a car on the wall was posted on the Dot Physics blog for Wired.  A second blog entry describes the physics of a motorcycle on the wall..

To open the Tracker file, download and run Tracker from http://www.cabrillo.edu/~dbrown/tracker/. Tracker is free.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.6 of Java (JRE).
