Morgan Bailey PHYS 1401 Conservation of Angular Momentum Report The analogy between linear and rotational motion can be extended to the concept of momentum. Linear momentum is defined as the mass of an object multiplied by its velocity. Rotational momentum is defined analogously, as the moment of inertia of a

Unformatted text preview: rotating body multiplied by its angular velocity. When two or more objects collide, as long as there are no outside forces acting on the objects, their linear momentum is conserved. In this experiment, you will determine if the angular momentum of rotating objects is also conserved in a collision....
