This Angular Velocity: 200 Meter Dash interactive also includes:
Do curves slow runners down or help their speed? Pupils simulate a 200-meter dash to calculate the angular and linear velocity of a runner. They then determine whether the runner is faster around the curved section of the track or the straightaway.
