UCSD Physics 10 Momentum & Impulse

UCSD Physics 10 Winter 20062 Momentum, p The linear momentum p of an object is the product of the object’s mass m and velocity v: Linear momentum is a vector quantity that points in the same direction as the velocity. SI Unit of Linear Momentum: kilogram · meter/second = (kg · m/s)

UCSD Physics 10 Winter 20063 Impulse, J The impulse J of a force is the product of the average force and the time interval  t during which the force acts: Impulse is a vector quantity and has the same direction as the average force. SI Unit of Impulse: newton · second = (N · s)

UCSD Physics 10 Winter 20064 IMPULSE–MOMENTUM THEOREM When a net force acts on an object, the impulse of the net force is equal to the change in momentum of the object: IMPUSE = CHANGE IN MOMENTUM

UCSD Physics 10 Winter 20065 Derivation of the Impulse-Momentum theorem Start by applying Newton’s 3 rd Law.Start by applying Newton’s 3 rd Law. F 1 + F 2 = 0; Equal and opposite forces! Expand the Equation!Expand the Equation! m 1 a 1 + m 2 a 2 = 0; but a = Δv/t m 1 Δv 1 /t + m 2 Δv 2 /t = 0; cancel out time. Therefore, m 1 Δv 1 + m 2 Δv 2 = 0Therefore, m 1 Δv 1 + m 2 Δv 2 = 0 Conservation of Linear Momentum.Conservation of Linear Momentum.

UCSD Physics 10 Winter 200618 Elastic Collision: Billiard Balls Whack stationary ball with identical ball moving at velocity v cue 8 To conserve both energy and momentum, cue ball stops dead, and 8-ball takes off with v cue Momentum conservation: mv cue = mv cue, after + mv 8-ball Energy conservation: ½mv 2 cue = ½mv 2 cue, after + ½mv 2 8-ball 8 8 The only way v 0 = v 1 + v 2 and v 2 0 = v 2 1 + v 2 2 is if either v 1 or v 2 is 0. Since cue ball can’t move through 8-ball, cue ball gets stopped.
