Impulse and Momentum Some more extremely useful relations are the concepts known as impulse and momentum. Conservation of momentum underlies several important physical laws in a variety of scientific disciplines from quantum electrodynamics to fluid mechanics. A derivation for this fundamental quantity is shown below: We now define a quantity known as momentum, as , and the change in momentum over a discrete time interval is defined as the impulse, : Note: In comparison with potential and kinetic energy, which are scalar quantities, impulse and momentum are vector quantities and must be added vectorially.

Conservation of Linear Momentum
Starting from a generalized expression for momentum We can take the derivative of both sides of the equation: And we arrive at another expression for Newton’s Second law. The force is equal to the rate of change of momentum. Thus, when the net force on an object is zero, then the momentum must be constant. This is the famous law of conservation of momentum.

Conservation of Linear Momentum
Linear Momentum prior to impact Linear Momentum after impact Initial conditions: After impact:

Given the following information:
Leads to 2 equations and 2 unknowns. These can be solved simultaneously, leading to the following result:

Relation between Force and Impulse
As shown in previous slides, the impulse can be written as: If the force is constant over a discrete time interval, then it can be taken out of the integral and the impulse is re-written as: This equation is very useful for modeling collisions, because the force of impact is not usually known (or measurable), but the initial and final velocities are known and/or measurable.

Angular Momentum Like linear momentum, there is also an expression for angular momentum, which describes how much inertia an object carries in rotating about a coordinate center. While its derivation will be reserved for later in this course, the mathematical expression is given here as: Path of particle The cross product denotes that the angular momentum points in an entirely different direction from the instantaneous position vector, , and the instantaneous velocity vector The direction can be found according to the right-hand rule. The O means that the angular momentum is taken with respect to the origin.

Conservation of Angular Momentum
The rate of change of angular momentum can be derived as follows: (i.e. the cross product of a vector with itself is always zero (i.e. they point in the same direction) We define this new vector, , which is the rate of change of angular moment, and it is called the moment of force about a pivot. Note: If the net force (or moment in this case) is zero, then it leads directly to the law of conservation of angular momentum.

Momentum according to Isaac Asimov
Isaac Asimov wrote in "Understanding Physics": “This tendency for motion (or for rest) to maintain itself steadily unless made to do otherwise by some interfering force can be viewed as a kind of "laziness," a kind of unwillingness to make a change. And indeed, Newton's first law of motion is referred to as the principle of inertia, from a Latin word meaning "idleness" or "laziness." He added a footnote: "In Aristotle's time the earth was considered a motionless body fixed at the center of the universe; the notion of 'rest' therefore had a literal meaning. What we ordinarily consider 'rest' nowadays is a state of being motionless with respect to the surface of the earth. But we know (and Newton did, too) that the earth itself is in motion about the sun and about its own axis. A body resting on the surface of the earth is therefore not really in a state of rest at all."

Central Forces In many forces, such as gravitational, electrical forces, etc., the magnitude of the force only depends on the distance away from the source (i.e ), and the direction is always towards or away from the source . Using these assumptions, we can derive an expression for the rotation frequency:

Using this result, we can arrive at an expression for radial force written purely in terms of the radial distance Now the question becomes, what function f(r) satisfies the solution to this differential form? Or alternatively, what is the solution to this equation:

The trick is to write it in differential form:
For example, consider the dot product of the velocity vector with itself. What is the time derivative of this quantity?

If you now multiply this function by ½ m, you will find that:
The result is that the equation for radial motion is now reduced to: The next step is to write f(r) in a form that allows for solution of this differential equation.

Consider for the moment that the function f(r) is actually derivative of another function.
After some manipulation, this formula becomes: So, now we can re-write the equation on the previous slide as:

This equation is easily solvable. It is simply a constant.
But we also know that the expression for the square of velocity. This equation then becomes upon multiplication by ½ m…

This is the kinetic energy stored in the linear velocity
This is the kinetic energy stored in the angular momentum This is the potential energy term When we make the substitution… The above equation becomes: Linear momentum Energy term Angular momentum Energy term
