A:the product of an object's mass and velocity.
Q:Define Conservation of momentum
A:The rule that in the absence of outside forces the total momentum of objects that interact
Q:Identify the formula for momentum
Q:Find why the letter P represents the word momentum in the formula
A: They are thinking that it came from the Latin word "petere" which means "go towards".They couldn't use "m" since it was already used for mass.
Q:Explain how a heavy moving van have the same momentum as a small motercycle
A:It could have the same mass or velocity
Q:Explain the diffrence between a "sticky"collision and "non-sticky" collision
A:When it is a sticky collision only one object has momentum and the other one rests at zero but when it is a "non-sticky" collision tboth of the objects have momentum
Q:Find a picture on the internet to support the definition of an elastic collision and label
Q:find a picture to support the definition of inelsastic collision and label
Q:It at type of collision would you think throwing a piece of clay onto the ground would be and why?
A:It would be inelastic collision because it would not have the same energy once it was in the air
Q:What is angular momentum? what dose it have to do with outer space?
A:It is a measure of the amount of rotation an object has.It helps us to see how much the world has rotated.
