Summary of clip: 2 drivers are racing down a construction site. One wrecks into a large pipe while the other continues. The second driver starts to turn and rolls his car into the ditch.

Connection of flickclip to the concept: Inertia causes the car to resist the change in acceleration, causing the car to roll over.
Suggestions to teachers:

This clip can be used to illustrate what happens when a mass with a large acceleration is impacted by another force.


Ask the students: What would happen if the car was more massive or less massive. Greater velocity versus lower velocity?

Why did the first car spin when impacted and the second car flip over?
