Malcolm in the Middle: Dewey's Dominoes
00:00:00 - 00:01:05
  • Physics → Simple Machines → Inclined Plane
  • Physics → Energy → Potential Energy
  • Physics → Energy → Kinetic Energy

Dewey is sick at home and creates a dominoes masterpiece. The dominoes illustrate the conversion of potential energy to kinetic energy.
