Toast Falling from Table Tracker Experiment
written by Maria Vélez, Juan Alberto Cano Díez, Jimena Fernández del Valle, Alba Fernández Vázquez, Sergio García Pajares, and Héctor Bolaños Chamorro
This is a video of an experiment of a falling toast performed with Tracker by first year Physics Majors at Universidad the Oviedo.
In the first Tracker file, the motion of the toast end points and its Center of Mass is analyzed as it falls from a high table. The center of mass follows an approximately parabolic motion with a certain horizontal friction.

In the second file the rotation of the toast end points relative to the Center of Mass is displayed.The experiment clearly shows that the toast makes a half turn during its falling trajectory so that it arrives upside down to the floor.

This experiment was performed as a project by students Juan Alberto Cano Díez, Jimena Fernández del Valle, Alba Fernández Vázquez, Sergio García Pajares y Héctor Bolaños Chamorro
