12/11/2012 - 4:00 AM
St. Cloud State University professor of Physics, Astronomy and Engineering Dr. Kevin Haglin and Biology Professor Dr. Bruce Jacobson are doing some myth-busting Wednesday evening at 4 p.m. Haglin and Jacobson are exploring the friction created by interleaving two 800-page phone books, similar to an episode of the popular TV show Mythbusters.
The professors say that the experiment conducted by the myth busters is not so simple. Haglin and Jacobson will present their phone book friction test, which they say can be repeated in laboratories for engaged learning experiences.
They will present in the Wick Science Building Room 124 at St. Cloud State University.
