Unformatted text preview: EXPERIMENT 9. CONSERVATION OF LINEAR MOMENTUM 5. Compare your initial and final momentum (magnitude and angle) for both collisions. Was momentum conserved? 6. Compare your initial and final energy. What percent of the initial energy was lost in the collision in each collision? Would you classify this collision as a fully elastic, partially inelastic or fully inelastic collision? Report In addition to the standard elements of a well written lab report described in the introduction to this manual, your report must include: 1. A printout of the graphs of the magnitude and angle of momentum, as well as kinetic energy for your collision. You will need to plot these quantities separately so that each graph can have the y-axis scaled and labeled appropriately for each quantity. Make sure the y-axis scale starts at zero so that the relative magnitude of any fluctuations can be seen on the graph. 2. A conclusion, addressing the two questions asked in the statistical analysis section under steps 5 and 6. 61 ...
