Students will learn the meaning of impulse force and how to calculate both impulse and impulse force in various situations.
Explains the differences between collisions where moving objects come to halt and where they bounce off each other.
Requires understanding and calculation of impulse, force of impulse, change in momentum and time of impact.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Impulse.
What role do impulses play in whether or not a fragile wine glass breaks upon impact with the ground?
This study guide reviews momentum, law of conservation of momentum, impulse, and collisions (perfectly elastic and perfectly inelastic).
