1 Forces & Motion Momentum: Applied Physics and Chemistry Lecture 6

2 Momentum Momentum Momentum quantity of motion quantity of motion p = mv p:momentum (kg ·m/s) m:mass (kg) v:velocity (m/s) m p v

3 Momentum Find the momentum of a bumper car if it has a total mass of 280 kg and a velocity of 3.2 m/s. Find the momentum of a bumper car if it has a total mass of 280 kg and a velocity of 3.2 m/s. GIVEN: p = ? m = 280 kg v = 3.2 m/s WORK : p = mv p = (280 kg)(3.2 m/s) p = 896 kg·m/s m p v

4 Momentum The momentum of a second bumper car is 675 kg·m/s. What is its velocity if its total mass is 300 kg? The momentum of a second bumper car is 675 kg·m/s. What is its velocity if its total mass is 300 kg? GIVEN: p = 675 kg·m/s m = 300 kg v = ? WORK : v = p ÷ m v = (675 kg·m/s)÷(300 kg) v = 2.25 m/s m p v

5 Conservation of Momentum Law of Conservation of Momentum Law of Conservation of Momentum The total momentum in a group of objects doesnt change unless outside forces act on the objects. The total momentum in a group of objects doesnt change unless outside forces act on the objects. p before = p after

6 Conservation of Momentum One bumper car has a mass of 300 kg and a velocity of 2 m/s. A second bumper car has a mass of 500 kg and a velocity of 2 m/s. They collide, stick together and move off. What is their velocity after the collision? One bumper car has a mass of 300 kg and a velocity of 2 m/s. A second bumper car has a mass of 500 kg and a velocity of 2 m/s. They collide, stick together and move off. What is their velocity after the collision?
