Description: The fan carts display Newton’s Third law of motion. The cart moves in the direction opposite to the direction that the air is blowing.


  1. Turn on the fan cart without the sail and observe it moves opposite the direction the fan blows
  2. Turn off the fan cart and turn on the fan cart with the sail
  3. Observe how the sail prevents the cart from moving when the fan is on, but will move if the sail is blown on.
