Ch12. The Great Conservation Laws A change in momentum: If a net force is applied to any object over some time interval , the object’s momentum will change. F ∆t = ∆(mv) = a change in the vector momentum of the object 1 . Conservation of Momentum: In an isolated system as time passes, total momentum is a constant vector. 2 . Conservation of Energy: In an isolated system as time passes, total energy has a constant magnitude. A change in Energy: If a force is applied to an object over some distance

Unformatted text preview: interval and the object moves parallel to the direction of the force, the objects energy will change. F d // = (energy) = a change in the total energy of the object = Work : a process by which E can be transferred Kinetic Energy = ()mv 2 [Joule] A moving object has at least momentum and kinetic energy . A moving object has the capacity to exert a force on another object. In doing so, a moving object has the capacity to create change within the system....
