Modeling a Sneeze: Kinematics in Pictures

August 01, 2020 12:00 PM EST - August 01, 2020 01:00 PM EST

Social distancing recommendations specify we keep at least 2 meters away from each other. Why? To answer this question, we’ll simulate and model the trajectory of particles in a sneeze. Using pictures and graphs, instead of blindly plugging numbers into equations, we’ll solve what is essentially a projectile problem. We’ll also learn about distributions while determining the average force and energy exerted during a sneeze.
