Physics 195 Conservation of Linear Momentum Page 1 of 7 SAN DIEGO MESA COLLEGE Name_________________________ PHYSICS 195A LAB REPORT Date __________Time___________ Partners ______________________ TITLE: Conservation of Linear Momentum ______________________________ ______________________________ ______________________________ Objective: To demonstrate conservation of linear momentum for elastic and inelastic collisions. Theory: Consider the situation in which a mass m 1 , moving with velocity v i , collides with a stationary mass m 2 , and the two then move as a single mass m 1 + m 2 , with velocity v f afterwards. The momentum before and after are given by: initial momentum: P i = m 1 v i final momentum: P f = (m 1 + m 2 )v f The conservation of momentum states: (P i = P f ) system Equipment: Air Track Blower with hose 2 Photogates 2 Gliders “needle”attachment “wax” attachment “flag “attachment 50g Masses 12” Ruler White Bubble Level Setup: 40 cm
