Chirality Through Classical Physics


Chris L. Lin
Chirality, or handedness, is a topic that is common in biology and chemistry, yet is rarely discussed in physics courses. We provide a way of introducing the topic in classical physics, and demonstrate the merits of its inclusion – such as a simple way to visually introduce the concept of symmetries in physical law – along with giving some simple proofs using only basic matrix operations, thereby avoiding the full formalism of the three-dimensional point group.
