Rocket Power: Sam Rides Down the California Incline
  • Science → Physics → Acceleration
  • Physics → Newton's Laws of Motion → First Law
  • Science → Physics → Inertia

Sam makes a daredevil move and skateboards down the California Incline. As much as he enjoys the ride, he has trouble stopping his skateboard when he gets near the end of the Incline.
