The following video clip from the optional readings list provides an excellent example of how nature provides examples of the laws of physics working a way that has already worked out "3 billion years" of Research and Development. This video clip is one that I think high school biology instructors might like to share with their physics instructors to perhaps update their knowledge about biology. Perhaps the videos from this week's module could be used as a tool to help high school physics, chemistry and biology instructors to develop a more integrative curriculum. CHECK THIS OUT!!
HOW A FLY FLIES...PROVING THAT THE BEE TRULY OVERCOMES THE FORCES OF GRAVITY!!
CHECK OUT THIS OTHER LINK ON BATS AND ELASTIC ENERGY...MORE PHYSICS AND LIVING SYTEMS APPLICATIONS!
Great video that explores how energy and forces are utilized by bats in flight. Another excellent pairing of physical laws with animal behavior.
