        Mass vs. Weight: Air Powered Mass

        In this video, astronauts on board the International Space Station conduct an experiment using an air gun to exert a consistent force on two difference masses -- an empty water bag and a full water bag. With different masses, the two bags respond differently to the force, in accordance with Newton's Second Law: F=ma.

        This media asset is from the Mass vs. Weight series produced by the Teaching From Space Office at NASA's Johnson Space Center.
