Science of NHL Hockey: Force, Impulse & Collisions

NHL hockey pucks are made of vulcanized rubber and weigh between 5.5 and 6 ounces (160 - 170 g). During a game, every movement of the puck follows the laws of physics and illustrates the concepts of force, impulse and collisions. "Science of NHL Hockey" is a 10-part video series produced in partnership with the National Science Foundation and the National Hockey League.
