Homework Help: What would car racing physics entail?

  1. Jan 25, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Meaning we will be going to watch race cars this year, in physics, and I want to get ahead and study now, but I'm not sure what to learn.

    2. Relevant equations
    3. The attempt at a solution

    I assume it will be Bernoulli Effect, down force, drag.. that's all I could find.

    Depends what level you're at for the fluid mechanics stuff, but of course for cornering one needs to know about static friction, circular motion and the kinematic equations might be good.

    Thanks :)
    Well I'm in year 12 in Australia (final year) and last year was intro to physics, now it's a bit harder.
