Goals for Chapter 8 To determine the momentum of a particle To add time and study the relationship of impulse and momentum To see when momentum is conserved and examine the implications of conservation To use momentum as a tool to explore a variety of collisions To understand the center of mass To study rocket propulsion

1. Momentum and Impulse Momentum (Linear momentum): Newton’s 2nd Law The rate of change of momentum of a body is proportional to the resultant force acting on the body and is in the same direction. p mv = r r : definition of momentum dP F dt = r r

Impulse : Defined to be the product of the net force and the time interval. When net force is constant, General definition of impulse 2 1 ( ) J F t t F t = - = r r r J Fdt = r r

Impulse-momentum theorem The change in momentum of a particle during a time interval equals the impulse of the net force that acts on the particle during that interval. 2 1 2 1 t t J Fdt p p = = - r r r r
