Newton’s Laws #5: Newton’s Laws at the Circus

PBS has an interesting site for their “CIRCUS” series featuring the physics of the circus.

For Newton’s laws, there is an activity guide and a video and explanation of forces.

The video features some adorable circus dogs performing tricks while explaining how Newton’s 3 laws are demonstrated with their movements.  The website also has some great diagrams that label the forces acting on the dogs.
