Moving bodies with variable mass. Programme 7, Rockets and avalanches

Author: Timothy David; David Felber; Shotlist (Firm); University of Leeds. Television Service.
Publisher: Leeds, U.K. : University of Leeds Media Services, 1999.
Series: Maths in a box.
Edition/Format:   VHS video : PAL color broadcast system : VHS tape   Visual material : English
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.
