Momentum, Energy, and Collisions
The collision of two carts on a track can be described in terms of momentum conservation and,
in some cases, energy conservation. If there is no net external force experienced by the system of
two carts, then w

A swinging pendulum keeps a very regular beat. It is so regular, in fact, that for many years the
pendulum was the heart of clocks used in astronomical measurements at the Greenwich
Observatory.
