Forces and Motion: The Physics of Car Crashes

Synopsis
Educational DVD aimed at KS 3-5. Newton’s three laws of motion are explained using slow motion HD footage filmed during car crash testing to explore how energy is distributed during the fractions of a second when cars crash. The DVD explores ideas of inertia, resultant forces, energy and momentum, but applies it in the real world context of designing air bags, crumple zones and seats to protect the passenger.
