Division with Fractions
This video indicates it is for pre-algebra, however this video would be good for anyone who is reviewing or learning division of fractions. In the video division of fractions starts with dividing a whole number by a fraction. The instructer uses a number line to show this concept, then does the problem, when doing the problem he uses the reciprocal and then multiplies. He does a few examples using both of these methods. Then they move on to the problem, change division to multiplication, cross c

Thrust - Lesson 5
This NASA video segment explores how Newton's second law applies to the thrust force on an airplane. Viewers watch an instructor at NASA's National Test Pilot School and learn that an airplane's engines work to change the horizontal momentum of the air surrounding the airplane. Viewers also learn that this change in momentum is accomplished through increased propeller speed, increased propeller diameter or increased air pressure in the jet engines. Onscreen formulas and calculations represent th
Lift and the Range of Change of Momentum - Lesson 3
This NASA video segment explores how Newton's Laws of Motion apply to the lift of an airplane. An instructor at NASA's National Test Pilot School teaches that for an airplane to overcome the downward force of its weight, it must change the momentum of the air molecules colliding with the wings. This is accomplished by changing the air's vertical velocity through increased propeller speed, sharpened angles of attack, widened wings or curved wings. Onscreen formulas and calculations represent the
