The Mechanical universe-- and beyond. Part I, The mechanical universe, programs 15-16

Author: David L Goodstein; California Institute of Technology.; Southern California Consortium for Community College Television.; Intellimation, Inc.
Publisher: Santa Barbara, CA : Intellimation, 1985.

Summary:
Program 15 likens the universe to a perpetual clock and applies the principle of conservation of momentum to explain why the universe continues to operate. The same principle is also applied to an analysis of collisions. Program 16 explains that the restoring force and inertia of any stable mechanical system causes objects to execute simple harmonic motion. Uses computer animation sequences, historical reenactments,  Read more...

Abstract:

Program 15 likens the universe to a perpetual clock and applies the principle of conservation of momentum to explain why the universe continues to operate. The same principle is also applied to an analysis of collisions. Program 16 explains that the restoring force and inertia of any stable mechanical system causes objects to execute simple harmonic motion. Uses computer animation sequences, historical reenactments, and close-up photography of experiments.
