The wind is blowing with so much force that the leaf doesn't have enough strength to withstand it, therefore the wind slows down a little but still retains its forward motion.
Another example is when you punch a brittle wall. If you hit it with enough force it will break and your fist will go through and keep its forward motion, albeit a little slower.
there are 3 laws of motion, but i assume you mean action and reaction. I was confused as well, but the force is the same of the wind and the leaf. Because the leaf is so small, its force doesnt compare, but it is equal to the wind.
The force of the wind on the leaf interacts with the force of the weight of the leaf and the leaf's wind resistance to move the leaf around erratically.
His head gasket was blown.
I believe the question should be what is a BLOWN fuse and why should you never replace it with a penny? A blown fuse would be one that has been over stressed and has burnt out or blown out to protect the wiring or other part of the circuit. A penny would bypass the fuse which is the safety measure in the circuit. Bypassing a fuse could cause a fire or serious damage to the device.
Wind-blown sand causes Mechanical Weathering of rocks by abrasion
Because it's been in the body, and has taken up the temperature of the body.
No. Assuming there are no eddies or crosscurrents, and it is not blown in a different direction by the wind, a leaf in a stream is being moved by the water, and would display little motion with respect to the water, as compared to its motion with respect to things not in the flowing stream.
The term of being high is being blown
by being blown
Due to thermal buoyancy, the winds gradually blown a circular motion, forming a hurricane.
Air in motion has a lower pressure than stationary air. Thus the pressure outside the window is lower than inside and the window will be blown outwards.
most often blown meaning supercharged - air being forced into the engine by a belt driven device..look on howstuffworks.com for a bunch of info. or it could also be referring to an engine that has "blown up" - blown a piston or rod etc.
You can be knocked down but not blown backwards.
yes a chemist would study a leaf being blown by the wind
Blue smoke out the tailpipe--lots of it. If its a blown ring seal, then the oil is being "blown" into the air cleaner, burned up and out the exhaust. Also, the engine oil level will be next to nothing.
