The Road Runner Show: Pendulum
  • Science → Physics → Conservation of Energy

The coyote gives a small push to the steel ball, and it misses the roadrunner because the roadrunner is out of its range of motion. This clip illustrates a violation of the conservation of energy since the coyote's small push somehow creates substantially more kinetic energy than potential energy.
