# Momentum

TermDefinition
Momentum An object's ability to resist change in its motion. Equation- P=mv P- momentum m- mass v- velocity Unit- kgm/s ** An object must be moving to have momentum.
Impulse A Change in momentum Equation(s) I=F*t I - impulse F - force t - time I=m∆V m - mass ∆V - change in velocity Unit: kgm/s
Elasticity The measurement of how much a collision conserves energy. 100% elasticity = perfectly elastic collision 0% elasticity = perfectly inelastic collision Most collisions fall in between!
Elastic Collisions Momentum AND Energy are conserved within the system. *Identified by bouncing. Start and End with two individual objects.
Inelastic Collisions Momentum IS conserved Energy IS NOT conserved - energy lost to environment. *Identified by sticking/deformation within the system.Start with 2 objects End with 1 object.
Conservation of Momentum and Energy Momentum and Energy will be conserved within a system as long as no outside forces act on the system. Objects within the system can lose energy or momentum to one another or the environment but energy and momentum will be conserved as a whole.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
