Physics 1D03 - Lectur (We say “linear” momentum to distinguish it from angular momentum , a different physical quantity.) Definition: The linear momentum p of a particle is its mass times its velocity: Momentum is a vector , since velocity is a vector. Units: kg m/s (no special name). p m v

Physics 1D03 - Lectur p total = p 1 + p 2 + ... = m 1 v 1 + m 2 v 2 + ... The total momentum of a system of particles is the vector sum of the momenta of the individual particles: Since we are adding vectors , we can break this up into components so that: p x,Tot = p 1x + p 2x + …. Etc.

We can rewrite Newton’s Second Law: or This is how Newton wrote the Second Law. It remains true in cases where the mass is not constant.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
