Conceptual Questions 1) The surface area at the end of the gun against your shoulder has more surface area than the bullet so it doesn’t pierce you that damages your vital organs 2) The force of the hammer is larger because the mass times gravity is larger there for more force to drive the nail down into the surface. Analysis In this lab we were observing the change in impulse and momentum. We had a track with two different carts. Motion sensors were on both sides of the track to observe the

Unformatted text preview: velocities of the carts. In activity one we observed that before the collision the total momentum was 2.435. And after the collision the momentum changed to 1.0646. The momentum was decreased for the cart being collided into because the velocity was lower. When we added weight to the dynamics cart the collision carts momentum increased than previously because the added weight gave more of a force. We can conclude that the bigger the force the more the change of momentum will be....

    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.
