Momentum Transfer and Collisions Name: Teammates: Introduction For this lab, we will be making use of online videos showing collision carts demonstrating momentum transfer that were produced by Rutgers University. We will be using 3 separate video files, each demonstrating different configurations of the collision experiment. Before beginning, an understanding of how to get real data from these videos must be achieved. The first piece of information needed is that all three videos show 15fps or 15 frames per second. Notice that the bottom of the video has a measurement scale in centimeters with which the positions of the gliders can be determined. By examining the video frame by frame (the Quicktime player has the ability to go frame by frame) and noting the positions for different frames, velocity can be found. An example: The video shows the glider at 40cm. Advance the video 5 frames (there is no collision during this period) and the glider is at 30cm. What is the velocity? Using v= Δ
