        How Racecar Drivers Use Physics on the Track

        Learn how aerodynamics and grip affect a car’s performance in this video from SciTech Now. Automotive experts discuss how repeat testing is done to continually improve a car’s aerodynamics and increase its grip on the racetrack in order to raise the chances of winning a race.

        See the Visualizing Airflow Activity in the Supporting Materials section to conduct your own wind tunnel aerodynamics tests.
