Acceleration and Skydiving

Untamed Science is a neat, educational YouTube channel that I just learned about through the Pearson OLE blog. One of the videos that I watched this morning was Acceleration & Skydiving. The video explains the answer to the question, "when is acceleration the greatest in skydiving?" Watch the video below to find out the answer to that question.

Applications for Education
Before showing this video to your students ask them to use their knowledge of physics to formulate answer choices.
