Barycentre Over Front Hooves (Technetium) by Parclytaxel Barycentre Over Front Hooves (Technetium) by Parclytaxel
Pony physics, when isolated from magic, is in many ways identical to real-world physics: ice blocks drift across a lake's surface, effort is expended to buck apples off trees and ponies' tails move as counterweights while running. Many of my pictures introduce modern physics (i.e. quantum mechanics, quantum field theory and relativity) into this classical physics-dominated mix, but this picture's concept dates back to Archimedes with the centre of mass (or barycentre). Animators know like second nature that hairs have a non-zero mass and therefore have important, practical uses; this request for ~Discordia-Rose shows one of them – hoofstanding – with Heartwhip's tail and torso balancing hind legs to place the barycentre under her front hooves.

Talk science to me! <3 It's great not to be the only pony fan who also knows the word barycenter. It's also a fabulous, fun picture, of course. :D
