1. DEFINE MOMENTUM: Momentum is the quantity of motion of a moving body, measured as a product of its mass and velocity. 2. Define Conservation of momentum: constervation of momentum is a law stating that the total linear momentum of a closed system remains constant through time. 3.Identify the formula for momentum: the formula for momentum is p=mv because the product is mass times velocity. 4.Find why the letter p represents the word momentum in the formula: The letter p represents prduct of mass times velocity with is momentum. 5.Explain how can a heavy moving van have the same momentum as a small motorcycle? The truck could be moving slow but its heavy and the motor cycle could be fast but its light, so it just depends on the force given. 6. Explain the difference between a "sticky" collision and a "non-sticky" collision:
7 Elastic collision:
8. inelastic collision :
9. What type of collision would you think throwing a piece of clay onto the ground would be and why: an inalastic collision beacue the force would not make the object move 10.what is angular momentum? What does it have to do with outer space ? Explain: Angular momentum is a measure of the amount of rotation an object has taking into account its mass, shape, and Speed.
