Breaking distance
distance by car as it is slowing down once breaks are applied
3 of 8
Things effecting stopping distance (thinking)
Drink, drugs, distracted (phones) tired...
4 of 8
Things effecting stopping distance (breaking)

Nuclear fission
is when a large nucleus splits into two or more parts
6 of 8
Nuclear fusion
is when two small nuclei join together forming a nucleus of a different element and releasing energy. This is how energy is released in stars
