The commercially available 'Superball' of hard rough rubber displays many counterintuitive properties which seem to violate Newton's laws of motion. We will see that the Superball can be understood but its behaviour is completely different to a billiard ball when it undergoes collisions with a wall. We will look also at some other unusual motions of swerving and spinning balls in sports.
Named for Sir Thomas Gresham, Gresham College was founded in 1597 and is currently located at Barnard's Inn Hall in central London. Since then, Gresham's professors have provided free public lectures to residents of London. These lectures teach on the subjects of the seven original professorships--Astronomy, Divinity, Mathematics, Law, Music, Medicine, Rhetoric--as well as Commerce, which was added in 1985. In addition to the professorships, the College also hosts frequent seminars and conferences.
