"The Physics IQ Test"


Richard Berg , University of Maryland
[Host: Craig Group]
ABSTRACT:
The assembled throngs vote on the outcome of counterintuitive "brainteaser" type physics questions, which are then answered by performing simple physics demonstration experiments. One interesting result is that the average score is about the same for groups ranging from high school students to physics professors.
