Physics teachers particularly tend to really experiment with conservation of momentum. While the Newton’s cradle is a great example which displays a transfer of momentum between several balls of equal mass—for which the total momentum of the system initially is equal to the total momentum finally—another great example is how much mass can absorb shock. With Newton’s cradle, the balls are of almost the exact same mass so the final velocity of the last ball after the momentum transfer can be expected to be equal to the initial velocity of the starting ball. With the confidence in understanding conservation of momentum many physicists would be eager to take on the experiment of lying down on a table, resting a concrete block on their chests, and allowing a student to swing as hard as possible at the concrete block with a sledgehammer. The usual result? The person beneath the block comes out completely unharmed. This works because the mass of the sledgehammer is so much smaller in comparison to that of the concrete block. When the momentum transfers, since the initial momentum must be equivalent to the final momentum the addition of mass results in an impact velocity of a way lesser magnitude. In terms of forces? M = mv while F = ma
The integral of the force applied is equivalent to the change in momentum.

Newton's Third Law of Motion: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Been MIA for a while, here's a little something something I did with @justin0o
While working with a client, I received the image of Newton's cradle to show that while it may appear that nothing is happening, sometimes things are shifting below the level of our awareness. The middle spheres appear to be still, but energy is being transferred.
We are both simultaneously. Stillness and motion. Spirit and flesh. Awareness is the recognition of both and purposeful movement from this perspective. .

🌀Did you know restricted eating predicts binge eating and out of control eating (aka- reactive eating)? Restrictive eating (including dieting and the desire for more “self control”) won’t help you stop binge eating, in fact it will make it worse!
🔺Restriction primes your body to think about food more and to crave higher calorie food. This is a life sustaining reaction. It’s what helped people survive when food was scarce.
〰️I often compare restriction to a sky swing or to #newtonscradle
-where simply put- every action has an equal and opposite reaction... for example, With the sky swing the higher you go the more you’re going to swing the other way. Same way with restriction. The more you restrict the more this leads to reactive eating. Unfortunately when you feel out of control with food diet culture then says that restriction is the solution which just starts the cycle over again.
🤔Maybe you’ve even experienced this before- What foods do you restrict? What foods do you feel most out of control with? The more out of control you feel with food, the more you restrict that food and diet culture reinforces this! It says that this is the path to feeling better. Nope. It’s the path to reactive eating + increased guilt & shame, and trusting yourself less around food. Restriction won’t get you out of that cycle...

The biggest project I've completed to date, and I am beyond proud of it. This piece represents a choice; a choice between stability and progress, or freedom and destruction.
