Trailer for Newton’s Third Law

UPDATE: I have just released my video on Newton’s Third Law of Motion. To see it click here. Hope you like it! 🙂 Mac.

Hi, I have released a trailer for my video on Newton’s Third Law of Motion. In it I explain the concept of action and reaction forces. I then conduct a series of experiments using the law. In the trailer below you can preview some of the content you can expect to see in the video. This includes using the law to accelerate my kart. Do you know why I move backwards when I throw the ball? I explain all in my video.

The final experiment in the video is where I use Newton’s third law to launch my rocket. There are many misconceptions of the way in which forces act on a rocket during flight and I in my video I explain how to avoid those and interpret the forces correctly.

I hope you enjoy the trailer. If you have any comments please add them below. Now here is the video.




I teach physics and engineering through animation.
