The forces acting in this charming video of a hamster running don't make sense to me so I thought I'd bring it here. It's very unusual indeed, but hopeful it spreads a little bit of entertaining critical thought.
Consider that the hamster is running in the wheel and that he is causing the wheel to spin in a clockwise motion. Why is it that when he messes up his footing he is flung in a counter clockwise motion? Shouldn't the inertia of the wheel cause him to spin the other way?
The video is only 3 seconds long, so have no fear about loading time.
Have some fun and enjoy the video, but think critically about it.
