Momentum and Energy

The momentum of two objects in a collision is __________________. conserved
Momentum of a single object is the product of its _____________and velocity. mass
In an ____________________ collision between two objects, the objects stick together. inelastic
The law stating that the momentum of objects in a collision does not change. The law of conservation of momentum.
The change in momentum of an object. Impulse
Impulse is the product of __________________ and time. force
For a gjven impulse if you increase the contact time you __________________________ the force. decrease
For a given impulse if you decrease the contact time you _____________ the force. increase
_________________ energy varies as the square of the velocity. kinetic
Impulse is the change in _________________ of an object. momentum
An airbag ______________________ the contact time for the driver in a crash. increases
An airbag _________________ the force on the driver in a crash. decreases
______________ energy varies directly with the height of an object. potential
If you double the ________________of an object , the kinetic energy goes up by a factor of 4. velocity
mass X gravity X height potential energy
0.5 X mass X velocity squared kinetic energy
KE + PE mechanical energy

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:

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.
