Unformatted text preview: Some collisions will be elastic and others will be inelastic. In all cases, I expect the total linear momentum to be the same. To perform each collision, you must launch the gliders toward each other so that each passes through the photogate. First, you will find the initial velocity and then after the collision they will bounce back through the photogates to measure the final velocity. In this way you measure the initial and final velocity of each glider involved in the collisions....
