Taught by Professor Richard Wolfson | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Investigate Newton's second law, which relates force, mass, and acceleration. Focus on gravity, which results in a force, called weight, that's proportional to an object's mass. Then take a ride in an elevator to see how your measured weight changes due to acceleration during ascent and descent.
