Conservations of Momentum and Energy Leslie A. Beale Columbia Southern University
Impulse-Momentum Theorem The impulse-momentum theorem states that the change in momentum of an object equals the impulse applied to it. -Impulse = (final momentum) – (initial momentum) -Impulse is a vector quantity and has the same direction as the average force -Momentum is equal to the mass times the velocity of the object Newton's second law (F net = m • a) (Momentum and Impulse Connection. (n.d.)). Covered Concept Impulse Momentum from “Sunday Football game”
Linear Momentum and Newton’s Third Law What is Linear Momentum? When two or more bodies acts upon each other their total momentum remains constant provided no external forces are acting Concept covered Linear Momentum from the movie “ Hidden Figures ” (n.d.).
Momentum Conservation Exemplified Concept covered Momentum Conservation “Pro Tennis Game” The conservation of momentum is a fundamental concept of physics along with the conservation of energy and the conservation of mass. (n.d.).
