Description:

This site by Loren Winters contains an investigation of forces exerted by a BB striking an elastic strip. The site provides an introduction, preparations, analysis, and interpretations of this experiment, and the author presents an interesting paradox for visitors to resolve. A student gallery shows various examples of strobe photos, including balloons popped with paintballs and "fractured food."
