This site is created and maintained by University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign physics professor, Alan M. Nathan. Professor Nathan shares a generous amount of material from his physics classes at this site, such as lectures in HTML and PowerPoint format. You can also watch a 50-minute video on the physics of baseball that was given as part of the Jefferson Laboratory Science Series. Links to journal articles and other documents on unique topics such as the dynamics of baseball-bat collision, the acoustics of baseball, and wood versus aluminum bats are also provided. Other topics include information on aerodynamics of the baseball, the juiced baseball issue, and NCAA batting standards. This authoritative and interesting site is perfect for physics students and interested baseball fans alike.
