Chapter Six: Momentum and Collisions I) Linear momentum (p): p = mv A) Vector quantity B) Can be broken down into its components C) More momentum an object has the more force that has to be applied to stop it in  a given time II) The net force acting on an object is equal to the change in momentum divided by the  change in time ( Δ p/ Δ t = F net ) III) Impulse: continuous application of a force over a period of time A) I = F Δ t =  Δ p = mv f  - mv i B) Vector quantity with same direction as the constant force acting on the object C) Measured in kilogram meter per second (kg-m/s) D) Impulse-momentum theorem: impulse of the force acting on an object equals the  change in momentum of that object E) Magnitude of the impulse delivered by a force during the time interval  Δ t is equal  to the area under the force vs. time graph or equal to F av Δ t ( Δ p = F av

    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.
