Summary, etc.:
Students may never expect that they might free fall to Earth, but if they have ever dived into a pool, that's exactly what they've done. This book shows students how Newton's three laws of motion affect divers, skydivers, and mountain climbers' movements. Students discover who uses gravity, and who works against it, and all other forces that contribute to a successful dive or climb. After reading this book, students can decide if they will ever be interested in engaging in one of these extreme sports.
