Intuition behind Newton's Third Law of Motion. This video, which is suitable for high school students, starts with a black screen because the instructor, in his conversational tone, uses it as a 'chalkboard.' (09:19)

The sensation of "weightlessness" that orbiting astronauts experience on their missions would seem to make their tasks almost effortless. However, as Newton's third law of motion suggests, working in space can be physically demanding. This video segm...ent, adapted from NOVA, illustrates the significance of Newton's law to space-walking astronauts and the engineers who design their spacecrafts. (04:50)[more]

This is the third part of this series. (Part 3/3) Good visual explanation of Newton's Third Law in space. Applicable to middle or high school students. (05:59)

Energy does not change, and that means that it is constant. When one object applies force to another, the energy becomes and equal and opposite reaction. Learn more about Newton's third law of motion with this cartoon animation from StudyJams. A s...hort, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.[more]

Here's an old one from Bill Nye. He uses roller skate cars and water balloon passengers to talk about momentum, potential energy, kinetic energy, and impulse (07:29).
