The car didn't break down--they are pushing it for science! The 11th grade physics class took at advantage of the outdoor learning space on 78th St to do an outdoor, distanced physics lab. The students put their knowledge of forces and kinematics to the test to try to determine the mass of Rabbi Blaustein's car. They used a bathroom scale to record how much force they pushed the car with and measured the time it took for the car to move a distance they chose. So far, it looks like their calculations are close to the actual mass!
