Momentum(kg m/s) = Mass(kg) x Velocity(m/s)
All moving objects have momentum.
The greater the mass and the greater its velocity, the more momentum it has.
Momentum is a vector quantity and has size and direction.
'Momentum before = momentum after' in a closed system = Conservation of momentum.
- Two skaters skate towards each other.
- Skater A is 80kg and is moving at 2m/s.
- Skater B is 60kg and is moving at 1.5m/s.
- Total momentum before collision = (80x2)+(60x-1.5)
- =70kg m/s
- Total momentum…
