Wearing a helmet is all about impulse, change in momentum and the force of impact. This video illustrates why you should secure your helmet to your head. Thank you very much to Colton and Jean Johnson who said yes when I asked them if I could film ...myself riding my bike off their dock. Colton also said, “In my 75 years of living, that has got to be the strangest request I have ever received.” Thank you also to Chris Palmer and Larry Braak for being my on-site camera operators.

This video takes you to a speedway in New York. It explains the weight of the car and the impact the car creates during a wreck. The video shows you the wall around the track, made of foam, that increases the impact time during a wreck. The narrato...r also mentions mass, velocity, impulse, and change in momentum.

In this interactive activity adapted from Wake Forest University, learn about the principle of conservation of momentum. Two carts colliding on an air track demonstrate how momentum is conserved in a closed system. Observe six different scenarios—a m...oving cart colliding with a stationary cart of lesser, equal, or greater mass in both elastic and inelastic collisions—to see how the motion of the carts changes after each collision.[more]
