make a clicking noise.
Apply a gentle push to the cart with
the card attached. It should hit the
stationary cart and they should stick
together.
Inspect your graph. It should
resemble the graph shown here.If it
does not, repeat the experiment. If
you are not satisfied with the
appearance of your graph after 10 15 attempts, consult an instructor.
Have an instructor check your
graph and initial your report. Physics 1050
Experiment 5 Part II: Conservation of Momentum
Data Analysis
Click the examine button
in LoggerPro.
Move your cursor so it coincides with the collision point. From the
pop up box on your graph record the time of the collision and enter it
in Table 3 of your Activity Log.
To determine the velocity before the collision, click and drag your
mouse to highlight the 10 points before the collision. Click on
Analyze, then Linear Fit. A box will pop up displaying the slope and
intercept. Double click on this box and check the box marked
Standard Deviation for slope. Enter your results in Table 4.
Highlighting 10 points on your graph after the collision, determine
the velocity and associated uncertainty after the collision. Enter your
results in Table 4.

Experiment 5 Part II: Conservation of Momentum
Data Analysis
Using the equations from Prelab 1, determine the total
momentum both before and after the collision.
Include uncertainties.
Record your results in Table 5.
QUESTION 2: Is the momentum before the collision equal to
the momentum after the collision within the
uncertainty? Does this match your answer from
Question 1? Comment. Physics...
