Chapter 9. Linear Momentum and Collisions. Intro. Consider bowling: Bowling ball collides with initial pin Force on/Acceleration of the Pin Force on/Acceleration of the ball Momentum- simplified way to study these moving objects. 9.1 Linear Momentum and Conservation.
Linear Momentum and Collisions
Consider two particles (isolated) m1 and m2 moving at v1 and v2
From Newton’s 3rd Law
Law of Conservation of Momentum
