Manhattan 34 Cellar Bar

Event duration: 60 minutes

From quizzes to board games, there are plenty of ways to occupy your time in the pub. Unfortunately, playing frisbee with beer mats probably isn’t one of them.

Forces expert, Johann Ostmeyer from the University of Liverpool, tells us why beer mats and CDs make terrible frisbees. Using high speed cameras, and a variety of demonstrations, he’ll introduce you to the basics of torque, a measure of how much a force acting on an object causes that object to rotate.

The Cellar bar is only accessible by a staircase (14 steps) with handrails on both sides.
