    1. An airplane is moving with a constant velocity. You are sitting inside the airplane and you drop a ball. Describe what the ball's path looks like to you inside the plane and to someone standing still, observing the action from the ground. (Assume X-ray vision)

    2. Use Newton's Laws to explain why you feel the same in a motionless vehicle as you do in a car moving at a constant velocity.

    3. Explain using Newton's laws the effect of being pressed back in your seat when accelerating forward and being pushed forward while breaking.
