We will explore fire safety techniques for multistory buildings. In order to problem solve we will incorporate the physics topics of impulse and momentum. Students will have to explore the mathematical inverse relationship between force and time. Students will explore the safety of families when escaping a burning building. Students will have to design a device that can decrease the force or increase the impact time. This device must be able to support the fall of a family of two adults and two children from the average height of a two story window. This will help students connect the physics concept of impulse to real-world situations and help others.
