Students will learn what momentum is and how to calculate the momentum of objects. In addition, students will learn how to use conservation of momentum to solve basic problems.
Explains the conservation of momentum and how it applies to collisions. Provides examples of inelastic and elastic collisions.
Calculations involving the equation p=mv or p = m1v1 + m^2v^2, attaining the momentum or velocity of a part of a system.
This study guide reviews momentum, law of conservation of momentum, impulse, and collisions (perfectly elastic and perfectly inelastic).
