313. Momentum: Collisions in One and Two Dimensions

Description

This Physics Factsheet:
  • Explains the idea of conservation of momentum in collision scenarios.
  • Explains how studying the kinetic energy is used to determine whether a collision is feasible and what type of collision is occurring.
  • Explains how to deal with collisions that occur in two dimensions in terms of momentum and kinetic energy.
  • Provides thorough examples for students to follow through.
  • Provides a mixture of questions for students to practice dealing with conservation of momentum problems in both one and two dimensions.
