Lab Report 3.pdf - Conservation of Linear Momentum Purpose:...

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 4 pages.

Conservation of Linear MomentumPurpose:Finding how changing mass will affect an object’s velocity.Question:How does changing the mass of objects affect a collision of the objects?Hypothesis:If the total mass of both of the two different colliding carts is increased, then the final velocity ofthe carts after the collision will then decrease, because mass and velocity will be what results inmomentum.Variables:Independent: Masses of both cartsDependent: Final velocity after the collisionMaterials:All of the materials in the virtual lab.Procedure:Step 1.Open the online gizmo and open the demo. After completing the demo return to the set upof the experiment.Step 2: Make the experiment gizmo trail a collision of one moving and one staying still.Set the Elasticity to 0.Make both gliders have a mass of 0.5 kg.Put glider number one to the far left end of the track, and put glider number two at the 6 metermark of the track.Make the velocity of one glider to 3 and the other to zero.Press the button that starts the experiment.
