|A system of 2 or more objects in which momentum is conserved during interactions of the objects.
|A vector quantity defined as the product of an object's mass and velocity.
|The product of the force and the time over which it acts on an object. Also change in momentum.
|An event in which 2 or more bodies come together.
|A collision in which the total momentum and total kinetic energy remain constant.
|A collision in which the total kinetic energy of the colliding particles is not the same after the collision as before it.
|Perfectly inelastic collision
|A collision in which two objects stick together and move with a common velocity after colliding.
|Law of Conservation of Momentum
|The total momentum of all objects interacting with one another remains constant regardless of the nature of the forces between the objects.
