  1. Why do we need Shock Absorbers in a Bike?
    (Impulse - Momentum Connection; Class XI, Physics)

    The students explore the need of shock absorbers in a bike and try to find out the underlying principle.
    They interview some athletes and bike riders and observe the functioning

    They also try to find out the best design of Shock absorbers for riding comfort

    We pull our hands backwards while taking a catch while playing cricket

    The design of sports shoes and spikes

    Buffers are provided between two bogies of a train

    When we find that the brakes of our car failed, it is better to drive into a hay stack or mudwall or bush rather than to drive against a concrete wall or a tree
