Transcript

  • 1. Conservation of Momentum
  • 2. Types of Collisions Elastic Two objects collide and bounce off each other Inelastic Two objects collide and stick together Explosion One object separates into two fragments
  • 3. The momentum of any closed, isolated system does not change. The momentum before an event, p i , is equal to the momentum after the event, p f . p i = p f m 1 v i + m 2 v i = m 1 v f + m 2 v f where v i is the velocity before the event and v f is the velocity after
  • 4. Examine elastic and inelastic collisions in one and two dimensions at these simulation sites: Link1 and link2 Computer Simulations
