Newton's 3rd Law of Motion
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

AKA: Action-Reaction Pairs
Inertia in motion.
Formula: momentum= mass•velocity
An action between two different objects.
The quantity of force x time interval. (Change in momentum)
A physical quantity the remains unchanged during a process.
In the absence of external force, the momentum of a system remains unchanged.
Law of Conservation of Momentum
A collision in which colliding objects rebound without lasting damage or the release of heat.
A collision in which colliding objects tangle together and generate heat.
