## Momentum can be defined as :

It depends on the variables ___________________ and ________________________
Equations:
!

momentum =
!

p=

## The units for momentum are _________________

Momentum is a vector quantity which mean sit has both ___________________ and _____________
If an object has a large momentum either its _________________ or ________________ is large.
Go to the bottom of the page - Check for understanding and do the following problem
1. Determine the momentum (p) of a ...
a. 60-kg (m) halfback moving eastward at 9 m/s (v) .
p = m v = (60 kg) x (9 m/s) =
b. 1000-kg car moving northward at 20 m/s.

## Go to http://www.physicsclassroom.com/class/momentum/u4l2b.cfm to answer the following

questions:
The momentum of two objects before a collision is _______________ to the momentum
of the same two objects after the collision
In other words momentum is _____________________________.
See picture on right side---> Conserved means _________________ or _______
_____________________________.
Impulse is equal to change in _____________________________.
The equation for Impulse (I)

I=Fxt

or I = Ft

Go down and click on the animation at the bottom of the page. Read the text and watch the
animation.
