Flashcards in Momentum and Collisions Deck (6):
What is the equation for momentum?
Momentum (kgm/s) = Mass (kg) * Velocity (m/s)
p = m * v
Momentum is a property of [ ]
The [ ] the mass of an object and the greater its velocity the [ ] the object has
Momentum has both speed and [ ]
What is conservation of momentum?
In a closed system, the total momentum before an event is the same as after the event.
