Students can develop a feel for momentum through experimentation. However, it is only by dealing with it mathematically that...
Class practical: Another example of an inelastic interaction.
Alternative experiments to show momentum interchanges.
Class practical: Students investigate what happens when two trolleys collide and no energy is lost in the collision.
Demonstration: This demonstration models a student jumping from a table to the floor. The force which the floor must exert to...
Demonstration: Using impact time and change of momentum of a football to measure the force needed to kick the ball.
Demonstration: Invisible collisions- collisions when objects do not touch.
Class practical: Collisions when objects stick together.
Class practical: Trolleys colliding inelastically.
Demonstration: A moving glider on a linear air track collides with a stationary glider, thus giving it some momentum. This...
Demonstration: A direct measurement of the speed of a rifle pellet.
