When it comes to Hollywood, physics usually gets thrown out the window. From Iron Man’s outrageously sophisticated suit to Daredevil’s superhuman hearing, comic book movies are no exception, and many superheroes invalidate physics on a regular basis. Thor’s hammer, for example, seemingly violates the principle of conservation of momentum, one of the most powerful laws in physics.
On the other hand, Spider-Man is a physics expert. His masterful web-weaving is one extremely complex differential equation that he essentially solves in real time. But you don’t need to be an engineer to understand his smooth moves; you just need to have a sense of how pendulums work as he swings between buildings.
