     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Professor of Chemistry and Physics Sanchiro Yoshida will present the next Science on Tap presentation titled “Physics in our Daily Life – How Beautiful it is.”
     Yoshida will explore the use of physics in daily life, such as exercising and eating a favorite food.
     Sponsored by the Department of Biological Sciences, the presentation is scheduled Feb. 6, at 7 p.m. at Tope La Catering, 113 East Thomas St. in Hammond, and is free and open to all ages. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with food and beverages available for purchase.
     Yoshida said the presentation will begin with brief explanations of fundamental laws of mechanics and electrodynamics with minimal mathematics.
     “These laws will be used to understand various things we observe every day, such as why it is difficult to lose weight by exercise, how to drive our cars safely and economically, and how to win in a tennis match,” he said. “Some topics will be discussed quantitatively with simple calculations. It is hoped that this presentation provides new ways of viewing what we do routinely and the consequences.”
     Comments and questions are highly welcomed during the presentation, Yoshida said.
