Career Clips: Forces and motion in computer games *suitable for home teaching*

From the Institute of Physics, this seven minute film showcases how an understanding of forces and motion is required to develop certain video games. It looks at the work of a company which develops computer models that ensure objects and people in video games adhere to real world laws of motion. The work is an exciting application of physics and mathematics. As well as showing their work, the video describes the motion of objects. This includes brief descriptions of unbalanced forces, movement, velocity, gravity, momentum and collisions. These descriptions help show the real-life application of motion equations. This clip is part of series which illustrate the opportunities that studying physics can make possible.
