Equal and Opposite Thrust in Aircraft: You're a Pushover!
7th - 9th CCSS: Designed
It's the law—every action requires a reaction, no matter how small. Pupils experience two demonstrations of Newton's third law of motion as it relates to thrust in the 10th segment of a 22-part unit on flight. Using their mathematical...
Study Jams! Newton's Third Law: Action & Reaction
3 mins 6th - 9th CCSS: Adaptable
What happens when two teens collide? Find out when RJ runs into Chloe in the school hallway! After their collision, they discuss Newton's third law of motion. Their collision is replayed a few times to identify the action and reaction of...
NASA Engineering Design Challenges - Spacecraft Structures
6th - 9th
What kind of design challenges are there in building structures to support rocket engines? The unit takes design teams through the process of building the lightest possible thrust support structure that can withstand the necessary forces...
Using Conservation of Energy to Determine Average Impact Force
7th - 12th
Explore the center of gravity with your science class as they create a deadfall trap with common materials. They research the concepts of energy conservation and gravitational force before dividing into small groups to create a model of...
