Lab 6: Conversation of Linear MomentumNicole Knight, Amara Brown, Ronald GoldsberryOctober 19th, 2017General Physics 1 Lab PHY2048LDr. Williamson
IntroductionIn Newton’s Third Law of Motion, it describes the equal and opposite force expelled by an object when another object applies a force onto it. All forces exerted between two objects occur in an equal magnitude, but also an opposite direction. In this experimentation we will be observing this Third Law of Motion with an airtrack, two gliders (one with bumper attachment), photogates, and a balance.DiagramDataCalculationsDiscussion of Results and Error AnalysesConclusionQuestions1.Express the change in the total momentum of the system as a percentage of the initial momentum of the glider number one. Are the results of this experiment consistent with
