Chapter 7 Summary

Momentum :

Impules:

Newton’s second law:

Total momentum of an isolated system of objects is conserved.

Momentum is conserved during collisions.

Momentum and Collisions

Chapter 7 Summary

In an elastic collision, total kinetic energy is also conserved

In an inelastic collision, some kinetic energy is lost.

In a completely inelastic collision, the two objects stick together after the collision.

The center of mass of a system is the point at which external forces can be considered to act.
