why is motion of frisbee thrown in air not a rolling motion?
Asked by mac12303190 | 10th Nov, 2010, 12:00: AM
A frisbee has its weight concentrated around the rim to maximize this stabilizing effect. Throwing a Frisbee without any spin allows it to tumble to the ground. The momentum of the spin also gives it orientational stability, allowing the Frisbee to receive a steady lift from the air as it passes through it. The faster the Frisbee spins, the greater its stability.
Hope this helps.
