Review Center of Mass - (CM, COM) - Point that moves as though (1) all of the system’s mass were concentrated there (2) all external forces were applied there p = m v Momentum Kinetic Energy K = 1 2 mv 2 Vector Scalar F NET = d P dt Newton’s 2nd Law - works for both single particle and system of particles Δ p = F ( t ) dt t i t f An impulse ( J ) will cause a momentum change If there are no external forces momentum is conserved d P dt = 0 P = constant
