The Physics of Car Crashes

Streaming Video - 2015
Rate this:
Bring Newton's three laws of motion to life with this video that uses extraordinary 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 video 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 passengers.
