Characteristic of all moving objects relating to the mass and velocity of it.
Momentum = Mass x Velocity
In the absense of outside forces such as friction, total momentum of objects that interact do not change.
What does this represent?
P came fro latin word petere whihc means go towads.
How can two objects have the same momentum?
Remember...Momentum is dependent apon both Mass and Acceleration!
How can a van and motercycle have the same momentum?
Since Momentum is equal to mass times acceleration this means a motercycle can be accelerating quickly while having less mass and still have the same momentum! Imagine that!
What is a sticky collision and non-sticky collision?
Sticky collision is a collision in which two objects stick together in a collision when they collide where as, a non-stickly collision is where two objects do not stick together and outside forces are negligible.
Throwing clay into the ground...
This occurs when a top like action, spin occurs, instead of going like a normal object.
