A part of my bro’s high school Physics notes he wrote inspired by watching me play RE5 a while back.
Newton’s laws of motion f=ma (force=mass of acceleration)
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).
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.
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.
