- Momentum
- when a force acts on an object it changes its momentum
- momentum has a SIZE and <--direction-->
- calculation for momentum: p = m x v
- momentum (kgm/s) = mass (kg )x velocity(m/s)

- Conservation of Momentum
- if objects collide then the total momentum before the collision will be equal to the total momentum after the collision
- P1 = P2

- A LARGE force causes a LARGE damage in momentum
- if a momentum changes very quickly the force will be very LARGE
- the longer it takes for a change in momentum, the smaller the force.

- if a momentum changes very quickly the force will be very LARGE
