**Riveting, relevant, and counterintuitive videos involving topics we discuss in this class:**

Amazing ball rolling inside a cylinder. (torque, angular momentum, non-inertial reference frames, mouse balls…not what you think)

Siphoning of a string of beads and Understanding the chain fountain. (siphons, tension, gravity, slow-mo video)

Flywheel trebuchet (projectile motion, angular momentum, weaponry!)

Calculating Pi with Colliding blocks (collisions, conservation of momentum, infinite series, even optics)

The Dzhanibekov effect (angular momentum, torque, rotational inertia, saving a soviet space station)

But what is a Fourier Transform? (fourier transforms and their connection to rotation and center of mass)

The infinite pattern that never repeats (from Kepler's laws of planetary motion to non-periodic tiling and quasi-crystals, not really dynamics, but fascinating)
