This Physics Teacher Makes Art Out of Formulas

by Patrice Petitfrere


From electromagnetism to the law of conservation of energy, this teacher-turned-artist illustrates all your favorite formulas.

Yuri Kovalenok is a physics teacher that makes art out of formulas. You can find his interesting work on his Instagram account. But for today we picked a few of our favorites to share with you. 



1. Circular motion

Kovalenok calls this one "Centripetal acceleration and force" and describes how it refers to an airplane making a turn. "The aircraft makes a turn, moving in an arc of a circle with a constant speed v=360 km/h. Determine the radius R of the circle, if the body of the aircraft is rotated around the direction of flight at an angle of 10 degrees," says his Instagram post's description.
