Newtons Cradle Report Name:Kendal ShortTitle:Conservation Laws, Newton’s Cradle ExperimentHypothesis:The use of a computer simulation will successfully demonstrate the conservation of momentum and energy. I will observe Newton’s Second and Third laws. Gravity accelerates the swinging ball's mass and strikes the other balls with force, thereby creating an action-reaction pair[Ost13]. The force from the swinging ball is transferred to the next ball all the way through to the last one in line.Overview:the procedure for this experiment uses a computer simulation known as Newton’s Cradle. Four weighted balls are suspended from a frame and allowed to swing back & forth along one axis. When one or more spheres is lifted and released, the force is transmitted through the stationary spheres and transferred to the sphere or spheres balls on the opposite side. Observations were recorded and analyzed. Since each ball weighed the same after each contact
