Momentum (y) vs. Time Kinetic Energy (magnitude) vs. Time Questions
1) Identify the areas before, during, and after the collision on each graph. *See individual graphs* 2) What was the momentum of each puck before the collision? Give the magnitude and the x and y coordinates. Object A Magnitude: 0.797 kg*m/s X-Coordinate: 0.3350 sec Y-Coordinate: 0.797 kg*m/s Object B Magnitude: 0.156 kg*m/s X-Coordinate: 0.3350 sec Y-Coordinate: 0.156 kg*m/s 3) What was the momentum of each puck after the collision? Give the magnitude and the x and y coordinates. Object A Magnitude: 0.415 kg*m/s X-Coordinate: 1.035 sec Y-Coordinate: 0.415 kg*m/s Object B Magnitude: 0.264 kg*m/s X-Coordinate: 1.035 sec Y-Coordinate: 0.264 kg*m/s 4) Did you find the Law of Conservation of Momentum to hold true? (Make sure to test x and y separately.) Explain why you have come to this conclusion. If you found that it did not hold true, why do you think that it did not?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
