Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in Physics

  Abstract: In a Sherlock Holmes adventure "The Sign of Four" the culmination is the race along the Thames. The relative speeds could be analyzed to discuss the possibility and feasibility of this part of the story. Also a discussion of projectile motion could be made from the data mined from Sir Arthur's description. The exercise is well within the grasp of introductory physics students.
