Moving bodies with variable mass : rockets and avalanches

Author: Timothy David; David Felber; Shotlist (Firm); Films for the Humanities (Firm)
Publisher: Princeton, NJ : Films for the Humanities & Sciences, ©2000.
Series: Math in a box.
Edition/Format:   VHS video : VHS tape   Visual material : EnglishView all editions and formats
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.
