This interactive video tutorial allows students to explore concepts of momentum conservation and energy conservation. This vignette shows that when a suspended block of wood is shot from below with a .22 rifle bullet, the bullet embeds in the block which then rises straight up to a distance of just under a meter. Then, if the block is shot off-center and given a noticeable amount of rotational energy, it still rises to the same height as in the previous example. Careful analysis shows that the block behaves according to the laws of physics.

This vignette was studied and found to have a significant effect on learning. See Research Outcomes for details.
