8. A B uA Before collision, the total momentum is equal to the momentum of body A © D Hoult 2010

9. A B vB After collision, the total momentum is equal to the momentum of body B © D Hoult 2010

10. The principle of conservation of momentum states that the total momentum after collision equal to the total momentum before collision (assuming no external forces acting on the bodies) © D Hoult 2010

11. The principle of conservation of momentum states that the total momentum after collision equal to the total momentum before collision (assuming no external forces acting on the bodies) mAuA = mBvB © D Hoult 2010

12. The principle of conservation of momentum states that the total momentum after collision equal to the total momentum before collision (assuming no external forces acting on the bodies) mAuA = mBvB so, if the masses are equal the velocity of B after © D Hoult 2010

13. The principle of conservation of momentum states that the total momentum after collision equal to the total momentum before collision (assuming no external forces acting on the bodies) mAuA = mBvB so, if the masses are equal the velocity of B after is equal to the velocity of A before © D Hoult 2010

17. Before the collision, the total momentum is equal to the momentum of body A A B uA © D Hoult 2010

19. After the collision, the total momentum is the sum of the momenta of body A and body B A B vA vB © D Hoult 2010

20. If we want to calculate the velocities, vA and vB we will use the A B vA vB © D Hoult 2010

21. If we want to calculate the velocities, vA and vB we will use the principle of conservation of momentum A B vA vB © D Hoult 2010

22. The principle of conservation of momentum can be stated here as © D Hoult 2010

23. The principle of conservation of momentum can be stated here as mAuA = mAvA + mBvB © D Hoult 2010

24. The principle of conservation of momentum can be stated here as mAuA = mAvA + mBvB If the collision is elastic then © D Hoult 2010

25. The principle of conservation of momentum can be stated here as mAuA = mAvA + mBvB If the collision is elastic then kinetic energy is also conserved © D Hoult 2010

26. The principle of conservation of momentum can be stated here as mAuA = mAvA + mBvB If the collision is elastic then kinetic energy is also conserved ½mAuA2 = ½mAvA2+ ½mBvB2 © D Hoult 2010

27. The principle of conservation of momentum can be stated here as mAuA = mAvA + mBvB If the collision is elastic then kinetic energy is also conserved ½mAuA2 = ½mAvA2+ ½mBvB2 mAuA2 = mAvA2+ mBvB2 © D Hoult 2010

28. mAuA = mAvA + mBvB mAuA2 = mAvA2+ mBvB2 From these two equations, vA and vB can be found © D Hoult 2010

29. mAuA = mAvA + mBvB mAuA2 = mAvA2+ mBvB2 From these two equations, vA and vB can be found BUT © D Hoult 2010

30. It can be shown* that for an elastic collision, the velocity of body A relative to body Bbefore the collision is equal to the velocity of body B relative to body Aafter the collision © D Hoult 2010

31. It can be shown* that for an elastic collision, the velocity of body A relative to body Bbefore the collision is equal to the velocity of body B relative to body Aafter the collision * a very useful phrase ! © D Hoult 2010

32. It can be shown* that for an elastic collision, the velocity of body A relative to body Bbefore the collision is equal to the velocity of body B relative to body Aafter the collision uA In this case, the velocity of A relative to B, before the collision is equal to © D Hoult 2010

33. It can be shown* that for an elastic collision, the velocity of body A relative to body Bbefore the collision is equal to the velocity of body B relative to body Aafter the collision uA In this case, the velocity of A relative to B, before the collision is equal to uA © D Hoult 2010

34. It can be shown* that for an elastic collision, the velocity of body A relative to body Bbefore the collision is equal to the velocity of body B relative to body Aafter the collision vA vB and the velocity of B relative to A after the collision is equal to © D Hoult 2010

35. It can be shown* that for an elastic collision, the velocity of body A relative to body Bbefore the collision is equal to the velocity of body B relative to body Aafter the collision vA vB and the velocity of B relative to A after the collision is equal to vB – vA © D Hoult 2010

36. It can be shown* that for an elastic collision, the velocity of body A relative to body Bbefore the collision is equal to the velocity of body B relative to body Aafter the collision vA vB and the velocity of B relative to A after the collision is equal to vB – vA for proof click here © D Hoult 2010
