ME03 – Momentum is variable….. you change the mass and/or you change the velocity.

ME03 – Momentum is variable….. you change the mass and/or you change the velocity.

    ME03 – Momentum is variable….. you change the mass and/or you change the velocity   Summary….. Here is a help file to get a grip of these points: It boils down to a simple equation with just 2 variables to play around with….. (m and v). * Momentum (p)… is mass (m) [the vehicle and all in it]….. multiplied by….. velocity (v) [the speed in a direction]. therefore: * p = mass (m) x velocity (v) therefore: * p = m.v * The 'm' … Read entire article »

ME02 – Momentum is gained & lost….. you ‘dial it up’ and you ‘dial it down’.

ME02 – Momentum is gained & lost….. you ‘dial it up’ and you ‘dial it down’.

    ME02 – Momentum is gained & lost….. you ‘dial it up’ and you ‘dial it down’ Summary….. Here is a help file to get a grip of these points: Introducing a newly coined phrase: You ‘dial it up’ and You ‘dial it down’ * You (the driver) ‘dial it up’. … A driver is the responsible person to get a vehicle moving: … It is the driver therefore, that….. ‘dials up’ the momentum (accelerates the vehicle… safely) … This makes the driver … Read entire article »

ME01 – Momentum is a quantity….. you have ‘none’ or you have ‘some’.

ME01 – Momentum is a quantity….. you have ‘none’ or you have ‘some’.

    ME01 – Momentum is a quantity….. you have ‘none’ or you have ‘some’ Summary….. Here is a help file to get a grip of these points: – A road user’s journey is made up of being stationary and being moving. – A vehicle, when stationary, has a quantity of momentum = “none” – A vehicle, when moving, has a quantity of momentum = “some” – A vehicle with a momentum = “none”….. cannot cause crash hurt and damage – A vehicle … Read entire article »

Posters Pending: You Dial it Up Down – Yes You

    Poster: You Dial it Up Down – Yes You MOMENTUM EXISTS – MANAGE IT SAFELY This poster, is a statement to stimulate thought regarding the driver being responsible for ALL the momentum of their vehicle. It is a statement in itself, but points 1 and 2 below, are on which the logic of this awareness poster is founded…… followed by the notion that: * You….. (the driver)….. are responsible for your vehicle’s momentum. * You….. (the driver)….. are responsible to “dial it up” … Read entire article »

Posters Pending: To Stop – Brake Safely

    Poster: To Stop – Brake Safely MOMENTUM EXISTS – MANAGE IT SAFELY This poster, is a statement to stimulate thought regarding bringing a vehicle to a stop….. safely. It is statement in itself, but points 1 and 2 are on which the logic of this awareness poster is founded…… followed by the notion that it is unacceptable to transfer it (momentum) 1. Quantity of momentum = “some” or “none” A moving vehicle has a quantity of momentum = “some” A stationary vehicle … Read entire article »

Posters Pending: Velocity Alert – Amber Red

      Poster: Velocity Alert – amber red MOMENTUM EXISTS – DON’T MAKE IT HIT YOU A high rate of motorcycle collisions occur at T-junctions….. with a vehicle pulling out in front of the motorcycle. Momentum carries a velocity part….. which is speed….. in a direction….. because of the direction part, this poster was devised to make a driver “think” direction. * The direction of the first bike in the poster is side-on….. and if seen from a drivers point of view, … Read entire article »

Posters Pending: Spot the Pea-Brain

    Poster: SPOT THE PEA-BRAIN MOMENTUM EXISTS – KEEP YOUR DISTANCE This poster challenges the unsafe practice of ”tailgating”….. In this example, scooter riders traveling too close to the vehicle in front of them (even vans behind which they cannot see what is happening ahead – at all)…… This poster is designed to stimulate thought to consider appropriate spacing, to allow a safe stopping distances.   This posters relation to momentum is: * It is safe to loose a moving vehicle’s momentum, by braking, in … Read entire article »

Posters Pending: P = m.v

Posters Pending: P = m.v

    Poster: p = m.v MOMENTUM EXISTS – MANAGE YOUR ‘P’ This poster displays the simple and catchy equation for momentum, being….. p = m.v and stamped onto the poster is the tag line question “Get it?” This poster is designed to stimulate thought and discussion between people who may already know that p stands for momentum and the m and the v stands for mass and velocity….. and those who do not know….. yet.   This posters relation to momentum is: * … Read entire article »

Posters Pending 0001 – 6 posters

  Posters Pending 0001 – 6 posters (Introduction) To set things off, a batch of 6 images have been conceived & designed….. pending acceptance on relevance for use as visual stimulus. This is a “work in progress” project. Feel free to chip in..         2 key questions to consider for feedback are: 1. If you knew what momentum was…. would you recognise the poster to be correct? 2. Would you agree, momentum is relevant to road safety?   The initial goals for this batch are: 1. To stimulate… Awareness … Read entire article »
