Conservation of Momentum Newton’s 2 nd rd Laws F = ma = dp/dt “If the net external force acting on a system is zero, the total momentum is conserved.” examples: Flying projectile explodes fireworks (except for gravity) multiple warhead missile, rocket propulsion initially afterwards If no external forces , traveling at v = constant, Call the forces between the pieces of the projectile internal forces . by Newton’s 3 rd Law: internal forces act in equal and opposite pairs These internal forces balance to zero (Before and After explosion) Internal forces produce no net change in momentum! Explosions conserve momentum “pow”

Collisions are explosions in reverse! (run the film backwards) Types of collisions - go back to balls hitting floor: Elastic If ball bounces to same height all KE regained after collision Totally Inelastic ball stops all KE lost!
