Wednesday, Apr. 2, 2008 PHYS 1441-002, Spring 2008 Dr. Jaehoon Yu 3 Linear Momentum The principle of energy conservation can be used to solve problems that are harder to solve just using Newton’s laws. It is used to describe motion of an object or a system of objects. A new concept of linear momentum can also be used to solve physical problems, especially the problems involving collisions of objects. p JG Linear momentum of an object whose mass is m and is moving at a velocity of v is defined as What can you tell from this definition about momentum? What else can use see from the definition? Do you see force? The change of momentum in a given time interval p t Δ = Δ G 0 mv t = Δ GG ( ) 0 mv v t = Δ v m t Δ = Δ G F G ma = G 1. Momentum is a vector quantity.
