Summary Griff Jones, an award-winning high school physics teachers goes behind the scenes at the Institute's Vehicle Research Center to explore the basic science behind car crashes. Using a series of vehicle maneuvers on a test track plus filmed results of vehicle crash tests. Jones explains in anything but lecture style the concepts of inertia, the relationship between crash forces and inertia, momentum and impulse, and a lot more. He shows why speed and vehicle weight are critical elements in the outcomes of car crashes and how basic physics explains why safety belts and airbags protect people in crashes.
