Momentum of objects in a collision
Experiment 1 is conducted with two gliders, A, and B1, on a level, frictionless track. The
mass of glider B, is greater than that of glider A (i.e., mB, > m,).
In experiment 1, glider A, moves toward glider B,, which is initially at rest. Magnets are
attached to the gliders so that the gliders repel each other without touching. After the
collision, glider A, has reversed direction as shown below.
