We currently live in a world filled with videos. There are videos on YouTube, feature movies and even videos recorded with our own cameras and smartphones. These videos present an excellent opportunity to not only explore physical concepts, but also inspire others to investigate physics ideas. With video analysis, we can explore the fantasy world in science-fiction films. We can also look at online videos to determine if they are genuine or fake. Video analysis can be used in the introductory physics lab and it can even be used to explore the make-believe physics embedded in video games. This book covers the basic ideas behind video analysis along with the fundamental physics principles used in video analysis. The book also includes several examples of the unique situations in which video analysis can be used.

Rhett Allain writes the popular Dot Physics blog for Wired and in this book he takes a longer, smarter look at his most popular topics, from the purely fun (How much bubble wrap would you need to safely jump off a 6th floor building?) to the completely mind-boggling (Why does a mirror reverse left to light, but not top to bottom?). Allain is a physics professor and he's become very good at finding physics questions buried in the latest movie, video game, viral video or news hook. Each chapter will not only cover interesting subjects like lightsabers and McDonald's drive-thrus, but use those questions to teach readers basic physics concepts. He'll explore questions like: Is Angry Birds using real physics? Does a heavier truck make a better snow plow? What if everyone on earth jumped at the same I time? How many dollar bills would it take to stack them to the moon? Often the way he gets to the answer is more interesting than the answer itself.
