Kilonewtonman I applaud you, but thankfully don't weigh even close to
your 220 pounds ;-)
I have cloth bags filled with rice that weigh a Newton, I throw a few of
these out into the class and have the students toss them to each other.
Not something I'd have them do with metal masses. Most students are
surprised how small they are. Then I propose that McDonald's call their
quarter-pounder the McNewton. Seems to bring the point home,
cheers,
David
