Quantifying Motion
introducing quantities such as speed and velocity to help us better
understand motion
Speed = change in position
change in time
velocity = speed & direction objects move
Acceleration = change in velocity
change in time
velocity has km/s and direction
so acceleration also has km/s2 and direction
momentum = mass of object x velocity of object
force = push or pull
suppose there is a system if objects and he total force on the system is zero
(velocity is zero)
The total momentum of the system is the sum of the individual momentum
of each object
the total momentum of the system is a conserved quantity. It stays the
same at all time
This is called Conservation of Momentum
Q= According to the above, can we observe one ball come in mv and 2 balls
exit with ½ mv?
m= mass of one ball v = speed of incident ball
A= YES
Total initial momentum of system: mv + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 = mv
other balls have zero momentum
because not moving
Total final momentum of system
0 + 0 + 0 + ½ mv + ½ mv = mv*

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
