Rockets and Avalanches [electronic resource]: Moving Bodies With Variable Mass

EBS Trust (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
In this program, footage of rockets blasting off and avalanches roaring down mountainsides provides two perspectives of the same principle: the rate of change of momentum. Practical calculations of the time it takes for a rocket to lift off and the time a skier has to escape a landslide, plus an experiment with eggs and flour, reinforce the lesson.
