Small Bearing versus Large Bearing - What's the diff?
So, a while back Da5id
asked me if a small bearing makes a relevant difference on how a yoyo plays. I thought about it for a bit, then I thought about it a bit more. Next, I wrote down my thoughts and provided them to One Drop for discussion. As we usually like to share around these parts I decided to make the discussion available to the One Drop community, in typical Area 51 fashion.
Unfortunately, the forum software here is not conducive to presenting technical information that contains a smattering of images, equations, and diagrams. Therefore, I have converted the the discussion into a .pdf file and placed it on a file sharing site for all the forum users to see (I sure hope the sharing thing works!).
Please note before you click on the link below that the paper has not been spell-checked, grammar-checked, or proof read for complete technical rigor and correctness, but it should be close!
Without further ado, I give you the first technical look at the differences between small and large bearings from Area 51!CLICK HERE
Edit: I've already noticed a missing image in the paper...consider this a work in progress, I'll update the paper as I get time...
