Momentum is the mass of an object times it’s velocity. The velocity of an object would be it’s rate and change of direction. A collision occurs when two or more objects collide with each other. This causes the kinetic energy, the energy of motion, to be transferred
The purpose of the experiment was to use previous knowledge of velocity yo perform kinetic energy calculations, make calculations of gravitational potential energy, and to determine what affects GPE and KE more. What was determined to be true was that the potential energy was larger than the kinetic energy and that velocity had a greater effect on the kinetic energy because velocity doubles in the kinetic formula. At first the group had to convert the original ball’s mass from grams to kilograms by dividing by 1,000. Then the group had to determine the height of drop for each location and calculate the potential energy of each ball by doing
Bocce ball is a great way to demonstrate the complex wonders of Newton’s three laws in a simple and understandable way. Bocce ball, which was first documented in the year 5200 B.C., is a sport that was first popularized during the roman empire. It wasn’t more than just a
A) 15 s B) 30 s C) 45 s D) 4.2 s 15) A cart starts from rest and accelerates at 4.0 m/s2 for 5.0 s, then maintain that velocity for 10 s, and then decelerates at the rate of 2.0 m/s2 for 4.0 s. What is the final speed of the car?
5. A hockey player hits a puck at one end of an empty skating rink. The puck travels across the ice in a straight line until it is stopped by the goal at the other end. Explain how each of Newton’s laws of motion applies to this situation.
Name _ ___________________ Motion in 2D Simulation Go to http://phet.colorado.edu/simulations/sims.php?sim=Motion_in_2D and click on Run Now. 1) Once the simulation opens, click on ‘Show Both’ for Velocity and Acceleration at the top of the page. Now click and drag the red ball around the screen. Make 3 observations about the blue and green arrows (also called vectors) as you drag the ball around.
1) In the first experiment, “ How does mass affect your game?” it shows that the data on “Ball- Mass 3” that the 10 pound bowling ball had the highest kinetic energy of 27(J), the greatest velocity (m/s) of 3.42, and in average it produced 4 bowling points. According to the
3. Explain whether, during a trip, a car’s instantaneous speed (movement of an object at a specific instant) can ever be greater than its average speed.
Natural Forces Affecting the Driver In one or more complete sentences, explain how natural laws apply to the following scenarios: 1. How does inertia affect a person who is not wearing a seatbelt during a collision? Inertia is the quality of being unchanged. If a person is not wearing a seatbelt during a collision
Gigi crawford Environmental Science Mrs. Eckman Testing the Conservation of Mass Introduction: The law of conservation of Mass is when you perform in procedure where the weight that you start with is identical to the weight that you ened with. Hypothesis: If i combined vinegar and baking soda in a cup it will conserve the

I chose to find this out because I like working with wood. My hypothesis is that the oak wood will win because of the weight. The weight of the wood will make it go fast because of the downward momentum.
Momentum is mass and velocity multiplied together. More so, it’s “the difficultly of stopping a moving object” (Jones, 2013). One thing that acts upon
The purpose of this lab was to determine what type of collision (most nearly elastic or most nearly inelastic) different types of balls will have when bounced on the ground. First we dropped each ball onto the surface (Rubber ball, Softball, Mini Pool ball and a Marble ball) and record
CONSERVATION OF MOMENTUM PRACTICAL WRITE UP AIM: To investigate if momentum is conserved in two-dimensional interactions within an isolated system. HYPOTHESIS: Without the effects of friction the momentum will be conserved in the isolated system. In all three experiments the momentum before the interaction will equal the momentum after the interaction.
