TermDefinition
Conservation of Momentum When no net external forces acts on a system, the total momentum of the system remain unchanged. When two internal bodies interact and no external forces are acting on the objects, their total momentum remains unchanged.
Elastic Collisions Very brief actions of two or more particles where they come in close position with one another, resulting in a change in momentum or exchange of energy. These "collisions" obey the law of conservation.
Impulse The change in the momentum of an object that occurs when an unbalanced force acts upon the object for a period of time. >N*s is the SI unit of impulse
Inelastic Collision The usual case for collisions, in which kinetic energy is not conserved, but momentum is conserved.
Momentum A vector quantity that has the same direction as an objects velocity, its magnitude is equal to the product of the objects mass and speed; p=mv.

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.
