Fire Extinguisher on a Tricycle

A CO2 fire extinguisher is mounted on the back of a tricycle. When the CO2 is released, the tricycle is propelled forward. Watch Professor Lewin perform this demonstration on the Martha Stewart Show: http://www.marthastewart.com/show/the-martha-stewart-show/teacher-appreciation-day?lnc=4ef2dc5bfca40110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&rsc=showarchive_tv_show-archive
