## Resident Evil 5 & Newton’s Laws of Motion

A part of my bro’s high school Physics notes he wrote inspired by watching me play RE5 a while back.

PHYS 11

Newton’s laws of motion f=ma (force=mass of acceleration)

Example 1

Chris punches a Majini’s face.

1st - His fist wants to keep moving forwards after impact.

2nd - Majini’s face accelerates back because of the force applied to its face (a fist :) ).

3rd - The Majini’s face acted back and Chris’ fist might sting a bit (probably not).

Example 2

A jumping Majini gets shot mid-fall and falls.

1st - The Majini and bullet both want to keep moving in opposite directions.

2nd - Forces match and Majini has no acceleration until gravity acts on it.

3rd - Force of bullet and Majini act and react on each other to cancel out.

Example 3

Sheva jumps off a ledge knocking over a Majini that was climbing a ladder.

1st - Sheva keeps some velocity after hitting the Majini.

2nd - Sheva’s downward momentum overcomes Majini’s upward momentum and both fall downwards.

3rd - Sheva’s velocity goes down after Majini reacts with her.
