Linear Momentum of a Particle Momentum is defined as the product of mass and velocity: p = m v A net force acting upon a particle will change its net momentum in the direction of that net force: F = dp dt Units: kg m/s Scalar times a vector that produces a vector answer!
A 4.88 kg object with a speed of 31.4 m/s strikes a steel plate at an angle of 42.0˚ with the horizontal and rebounds at the same speed and angle: What is the change (magnitude and direction) of the linear momentum of the object? v 0 = ˚ v = ˚ m = 4.88 kg
p 0 = mv 0 cosø 1 + mv 0 sinø 1 = (114i – 103j) kg-m/s p = mvcosø 2 + mvsinø 2 = (114i + 103j) kg-m/s p = p – p 0 = (0i + 206j) kg-m/s p = p x 2 + p y 2 = 206 kg-m/s Ø = tan -1 (p y /p x ) = 90.0˚ popo p p 42.0˚
Impulse and Momentum A collision occurs when a relatively large force acts over a relatively short period of time. A net force will produce acceleration, and therefore a change in momentum: F = dp dt Fdt = dp The net force acting over time will produce a change in momentum-- this is called impulse (J)!
The impulse-momentum theorem states that the net force acting on a particle during any given time interval is equal to the change in momentum of the particle during that time period:
For a constant force: J = p = p f - p i For a varying force: J = F(t)dt = p
A baseball (m =.14 kg) is thrown horizontally with a speed of 42 m/s is struck by a bat. The ball leaves the bat with a velocity of 50.0 m/s at an angle of 35˚ with the horizontal. A) What is the impulse of the force exerted on the ball? B) Assuming the collision lasts for 1.5 ms, what average force acts upon the ball? C) Find the change in momentum of the bat. A) J = ? J = p – p 0 popo p ø J α
Solve using components (or trig): p xo = mv xo = (.14 kg)(- 42 m/s) = kg m/s p yo = 0 p x = mv x cosø = (.14 kg)(50 m/s)(cos 35˚) = 5.7 kg m/s p y = mv y sinø = (.14 kg)(50 m/s)(sin 35˚) = 4.0 kg m/s J x = p x - p xo = (5.7) - (- 5.9) = 11.6 kg m/s J y = p y - p yo = (4.0) - 0 = 4.0 kg m/s J = J x 2 + J y 2 = 12.3 kg m/s
α = tan -1 (J y / J x ) = 19˚ J = 12.3 kg m/s at 19˚ B) J = F av t F av = J / t = 12.3 kg m/s /.0015 s = 8200 N about 1840 lbs of force! acting in the same direction as the impulse! C) the p of bat must follow p = p 1 + p 2 = 0 Therefore, p for bat must equal - p for ball p bat = (- 11.6i j ) kg m/s or: = 12.3 kg m/s at 199˚
Conservation of momentum in collisions If there are no external forces acting upon a system of particles, then there can be no net change in total momentum of the system: P = p 1 + p 2 + … = 0
In any type of collision, linear momentum is always conserved! Total energy is also always conserved, but often times mechanical energy will be converted to internal, rotational, radiant, etc., forms of energy. If the mechanical energy is conserved, then the collision is known as an elastic collision. If K i K f, then it is an inelastic collision. Conservation of momentum in collisions
Elastic Collisions: p is always conserved: m 1 v 1i + m 2 v 2i = m 1 v 1f + m 2 v 2f K is also conserved:.5m 1 v 1i 2 +.5m 2 v 2i 2 =.5m 1 v 1f 2 + m 2 v 2f 2 P eq. can be expressed: m 1 (v 1i - v 1f ) = m 2 (v 2f - v 2i ) K eq. can be: m 1 (v 1i 2 - v 1f 2 ) = m 2 (v 2f 2 - v 2i 2 ) Dividing these equations: v 1i + v 1f = v 2f + v 2i The following can then be derived:
v 1f = (m 1 – m 2 )(v 1i ) + 2m 2 (v 2i ) m 1 + m 2 m 1 + m 2 v 2f = 2m 1 (v 1i ) + (m 2 – m 1 ) (v 2i ) m 1 + m 2 m 1 + m 2 If the target particle is at rest: v 1f = (m 1 – m 2 )(v 1i ) m 1 + m 2 v 2f = 2m 1 (v 1i ) m 1 + m 2
Inelastic Collisions: Momentum is conserved (as always), but K is not, so we examine one special case: In a completely inelastic collision, the two particles stick together and have a common velocity afterward: v 1f = v 2f = v f
Two - Dimensional Collisions Momentum is always conserved in collisions: ø2ø2 ø1ø1 p i = p f m 1 v 1ix = m 1 v 1f cosø 1 + m 2 v 2f cosø 2 m 1 v 1iy = m 1 v 1f sinø 1 + m 2 v 2f sinø 2 Remember: if the collision is elastic K i = K f v = 0
A 55 kg skater head north at 8.8 km/h and collides with an 83 kg skater heading east at 6.4 km/h. They embrace in a completely inelastic collision. A) What is the magnitude and direction of the velocity of the couple after the collision? B) What is the fractional change in kinetic energy of the skaters due to the collision? A B ø V
m A v A = (m A + m B )(Vcosø) (1) m B v B = (m A + m B )(Vsinø) (2) Eq. (2) (1) : tanø = m B v B m A v A =. 911 ø = tan = 42.3˚ V = m A v A (m A + m B )(cosø) = 5.21 km/h Momentum is conserved in the x and y direction:
Loss of K = K f - K i K i K i =.5m A v A 2 +.5m B v B 2 = 3830 K f =.5(m A + m B )V 2 = 1870 Loss of K = = % of K is dissipated in some form or other
Ballistic Pendulum h used to measure projectile speeds before electronic timing! A bullet (m = 9.5 g) is fired into the block (M = 5.4 kg) and they rise to a height of 6.3 cm. What was the initial speed of the bullet?
Momentum is conserved: mv = (M + m)V Total energy of the swinging bullet + block pendulum is conserved:.5(m +M)V 2 = (m + M)gh V = 2 gh v = (M + m) 2gh m = 630 m/s
Show how this is obviously an inelastic collision: K i = K b =.5mv 2 = 1900 J K f = K b + B =.5(m + M)V 2 = U b + B U b + B = (m + M)gh = 3.3 J Only 3.3 J out of 1900 J, or 0.2%, is transferred to the mechanical energy of the pendulum! The rest would be transferred as internal energy-- heat, sound, etc. K i K f

Assume the collision between the pendulums is completely inelastic and neglect the mass of the strings and any frictional effects. How high will the center of mass rise after the collision?
Particle Systems and Center of Mass
In this case, the motion of the two particles is complicated, but the overall motion of the system is relatively simple. x cm = 1M1M (m 1 x 1 + m 2 x 2 ) M = m 1 + m 2 The center of mass (cm)– the average location of the masses follows a relatively simple motion of a single particle. The location of the center of mass of the system is proportional to the each mass location:
For a many particle system: x cm = 1/M(m 1 x 1 + m 2 x 2 + …. m n x n ) M = m 1 + m 2 + …. m n = m n x cm = (1/M)m n x n y cm = (1/M)m n y n z cm = (1/M)m n z n r cm = (1/M)m n r n v cm = (1/M)m n v n a cm = (1/M)m n a n
Three particles are arranged as follows: m 1 = 4.1 (-2 cm, 3 cm) m 2 = 8.2 ( 4 cm, 2 cm) m 3 = 4.1 ( 1 cm, -2 cm) What is the magnitude and direction from the origin of the cm of the system?
x cm = (1/M)(m 1 x 1 + m 2 x 2 + m 3 x 3 ) x cm = (1/16.4 kg)[(4.1 kg)(-2 cm) + (8.2 kg)(4 cm) + (4.1 kg)(1 cm)] = 1.8 cm y cm = (1/M)(m 1 y 1 + m 2 y 2 + m 3 y 3 ) y cm = (1/16.4 kg)[(4.1 kg)(3 cm) + (8.2 kg)(2 cm) + (4.1 kg)(-2 cm)] = 1.3 cm r cm = (1.8 cm) 2 + (1.3 cm) 2 = 2.22 cm ø = tan -1 (y/x) = tan -1 (1.3/1.8) = 36˚
3M MM If each side measures L, where is the cm located?
Newtons Laws then hold for each individual parts as well as the center of mass for the system. Therefore, if the net external forces acting on the parts of the system are not balanced, there will be a net force acting on the center of mass of the system: F ext = ma cm If the net external force acting upon the parts of the system is balanced, then the center of mass of the system will move at constant speed: F ext = 0
Three particles are arranged as follows: m 1 = 4.1 (-2 cm, 3 cm) m 2 = 8.2 ( 4 cm, 2 cm) m 3 = 4.1 ( 1 cm, -2 cm) What is the magnitude and direction from the origin of the acceleration of the system? 6 N 12 45˚ 14 N

A shell is fired with a velocity of 466 m/s at an angle of 57.4˚ with the horizontal. At the top of its trajectory the shell explodes into two fragments of equal mass. One fragment, whose speed immediately after the explosion is zero, falls straight down. How far from the cannon will the other shell land, assuming it lands at the same elevation as which it was fired from?

m r = 93 kg m b = 52 kg x ro = 1.5 m x bo = 3.0 m x r = ? x b = x r – 1.5 m Neglecting any external forces, the cm of the system will not change! x cm = m r x ro + m b x bo m r + m b = 2.0 m
A dog weighing 10.8 lb is standing on a flatboat so that he is 21.4 ft from the shore. He walks the 8.50 ft length of the flatboat and then halts. The boat weighs 46.4 lb, and you can assume the water to be frictionless. How far is the dog from the shore after walking? (Assume the boat is perpendicular to the shore and realize that you have two possible answers depending upon whether the dog walks toward the shore or away).
Richard, mass 78.4 kg, and Judy, who is less massive, sit at opposite ends of a canoe, 2.93 m apart, on placid water. The canoe is 31.6 kg. The two changes seats and Richard notices that the canoe has moved 41.2 cm relative to a sunken log. Richard then decides to calculate Judys mass. (Richard is a loser who will die alone playing a video game in his mothers basement which he will call his mancave.) What is Judys mass? R J 55.2 kg x c =.412 m
