      For example, "Everyone knows that a weight suspended by a string and taped to the ceiling of the bus will appear to swing backward as the bus speeds up, and forward as it decelerates, due to inertia. Also take along a helium-filled balloon on a string to tie to a seat or fasten to the floor." The balloon will do the opposite. Explain. 10-09

  4. Physics Online Superstar (U.S. News)
      "He swings around a college lecture hall on a long rope to show how pendulums work. He demonstrates velocity by firing a rifle. Massachusetts Institute of Technology Prof. Walter Lewin has become a global Internet star now that anyone with access to a computer can watch his tough but fun Physics 1, 2, and 3 lectures free of charge. They can even do the homework he assigns his Cambridge techie students (though they won't get the grades or credit). The Netherlands-born Lewin, 71, told U.S.News's Kim Clark that putting his courses online took a lot of work and cost about $100,000—but was worth it." 08-08
