Hey Phriendly Physics Pholks, I don’t remember how to calculate this: how hard *does* a kid need to be pushed to go all the way around on a swing?
You know, as a responsible adult, I don’t want the kids trying this on the playground swings. I mean, kiiking is the next challenge, and do we want the kids to try that??? Eeeps.
But then the kids, you know, are going to come up with the idea on their own and try anyway. We all did as kids, didn’t we?
And kiiking? Yes, I do want the kids to try that. Wheee!
