In-Depth Analysis of Angry Birds Physics Explained

Delving into the everyday objects through the lens of physics is something I find incredibly fascinating.

This interest led me to a piece on Wired Dot Physics by Rhett Allain, a physicist who explored the dynamics of the popular game characters using Tracker for a video analysis of Angry Birds.

Utilizing official Angry Birds walkthrough videos as a reference, Allain deduced several intriguing aspects: the birds operate in an environment without air resistance, the slingshot stands at a massive five meters (approximately 16 feet) tall, and the birds themselves are quite large.

For instance, the iconic red bird measures roughly 70 cm (27.6 inches) in height.
