This video segment highlights the forces at work on a racecar as it travels around a track. It was designed to promote understanding of velocity as a vector quantity with both magnitude and direction. It also offers an engaging view of factors to be considered in the design of a racecar: torque, drag reduction, and frictional force that is necessary to achieve fast (but safe) cornering.
