Define newtons first law
A force is required to change te state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line of a body
1 of 12
Define newtons second law
The rate of change of momentum of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on it
2 of 12
Define newtons third law
When body A exerts a force on body B, body B exerts a force on body A that is equal. opposite and of the same type
3 of 12
define linear momentum
Mass of an object multiplies by its velocity
4 of 12
Is the net force on a body = to the rate of change of momentum
yes
5 of 12
Define the impulse
Force X time for which the fact acts
6 of 12
Define mass
the inertia of an object
7 of 12
What is the area under a force time graph = to?
impluse
8 of 12
What is hte impulse = to
Change in momentum
9 of 12
What is the principle of the conservation of momentum
In any direction in the absence of the external forces the total momentum of a system remains constant
10 of 12
Define perfect elastic collsion
Momentum and kinetic energy are conserved
11 of 12
Define inelastic collision
momentum is conserved but kinetic energ is lost
