A) momentum of the system is positive B) momentum of the system is positive C) momentum of the system is zero D) you cannot say anything about the momentum of the system ConcepTest 9.2Momentum and KE I ConcepTest 9.2 Momentum and KE I

4
A system of particles is known to have a total momentum of zero. Does it necessarily follow that the total kinetic energy of the system is also zero? A) yes B) no ConcepTest 9.3Momentum and KE II ConcepTest 9.3 Momentum and KE II

A net force of 200 N acts on a 100-kg boulder, and a force of the same magnitude acts on a 130-g pebble. How does the rate of change of the boulder’s momentum compare to the rate of change of the pebble’s momentum? A) greater than B) less than C) equal to The rate of change of momentum is, in fact, the force. Remember that F = p/ t. Since the force exerted on the boulder and the pebble is the same, then the rate of change of momentum is the same. ConcepTest 9.5Momentum and Force ConcepTest 9.5 Momentum and Force

8
A) greater than B) less than C) equal to ConcepTest 9.6Velocity and Force ConcepTest 9.6 Velocity and Force A net force of 200 N acts on a 100-kg boulder, and a force of the same magnitude acts on a 130-g pebble. How does the rate of change of the boulder’s velocity compare to the rate of change of the pebble’s velocity?

9
A) greater than B) less than C) equal to The rate of change of velocity is the acceleration. Remember that a = v/ t. The acceleration is related to the force by Newton’s 2 nd Law (F = ma), so the acceleration of the boulder is less than that of the pebble (for the same applied force) because the boulder is much more massive. ConcepTest 9.6Velocity and Force ConcepTest 9.6 Velocity and Force A net force of 200 N acts on a 100-kg boulder, and a force of the same magnitude acts on a 130-g pebble.

15
A small beanbag and a bouncy rubber ball are dropped from the same height above the floor. They both have the same mass. Which one will impart the greater impulse to the floor when it hits? A) the beanbag B) the rubber ball C) both the same change in momentum for the ball is greater, because of the rebound Both objects reach the same speed at the floor. However, while the beanbag comes to rest on the floor, the ball bounces back up with nearly the same speed as it hit. Thus, the change in momentum for the ball is greater, because of the rebound. The impulse delivered by the ball is twice that of the beanbag. For the beanbag: p = p f – p i = 0 – (–mv ) = mv For the rubber ball: p = p f – p i = mv – (–mv ) = 2mv ConcepTest 9.11Impulse ConcepTest 9.11 Impulse Follow-up: Which one imparts the larger force to the floor?

19
ConcepTest 9.14Going Bowling II ConcepTest 9.14 Going Bowling II p p W = KE less massgreater speed(why?)greater KE(why again?) W = Fd same less massive ballbigger Use the work-energy theorem: W = KE. The ball with less mass has the greater speed (why?), and thus the greater KE (why again?). In order to remove that KE, work must be done, where W = Fd. Since the force is the same in both cases, the distance needed to stop the less massive ball must be bigger. stopping distance A bowling ball and a ping-pong ball are rolling toward you with the same momentum.
