Don't be an Egghead, Buckle Up!

Newton's First Law of Motion says an Object in Motion tends to stay in motion and an object at rest tends to stay at rest unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. We explored the basics of this physics concept. In this video we crash a remote control car loaded with raw eggs to demonstrate Newton's first law. We also learn that seatbelts are designed to help us stop with a car rather than continuing to move because of our momentum. Although the car comes to a near-instant stop, the momentum of the unrestrained egg allows it to keep moving. The results are messy!

We even invented a seat belt safety slogan "Don't be an egghead, buckle up!"

Check out the RC Car.
