2 Consider two interacting bodies: F 21 F 12 If we know the net force on each body then t m t = = net F a v The velocity change for each mass will be different if the masses are different.

4 The quantity (m v ) is called momentum ( p ). p = m v and is a vector. The unit of momentum is kg m/s; there is no derived unit for momentum.

5 From slide (3): 2 1 2 2 1 1 p p v v - = - = m m The change in momentum of the two bodies is “equal and opposite”. Total momentum is conserved during the interaction; the momentum lost by one body is gained by the other.

6 Definition of impulse: ( 29 p F J = = t t dt t 0 Note: dt d t p F p F = = net av Limit as t 0 Both expressions refer to the external forces acing on the system.
