Stacked Ball Drop and Momentum


What happens when you drop a perfectly balanced stack of balls? And how is the result like a supernova? The classic momentum transfer demonstration, at the next level.

A big thank you to my nephews and niece Drew, Max and Whitney for creating the trampoline footage!
Thank you to the Vlogbrothers for sponsoring this video, to Kyle Kitzmiller for filming, and to Island School for providing the balls (ischool.org).
