Momentum

  1. 1. Momentum Moving objects have momentum! Momentum depends on both velocity AND mass!
  2. 2. An object’s momentum is in the same direction as its velocity
  3. 3. Momentum = mass x velocity <ul><li>Momentum is often represented by the letter “p” in equations i.e. p=mv means momentum=mass x velocity </li></ul>
  4. 4. Law of conservation of momentum <ul><li>The total amount of momentum in a system is conserved. </li></ul><ul><li>This means that momentum, like energy and mass, cannot be created or destroyed-but it can be transferred to another object, though!! </li></ul>
  5. 5. Marcus’ most excellent example: <ul><li>If a baseball team is winning, and suddenly the other team makes a comeback, the momentum has SHIFTED to the other team, but the momentum was not destroyed, nor was any NEW momentum created!! </li></ul>
