Physics 101- Introduction to Mechanics
April 8- Center of Mass & Conservation of Momentum

 

 

 

 
 

 

  Test corrections are due April 15 (next Monday).  If you scored below 70, you must talk with Dr. Jeff before turning in your corrections. 

Today-

  • We'll look more closely at the idea of center of mass.
  • Given the power of conservation laws, we'll look for another conserved mechanical quantity.
  • We'll see how this quantity (momentum) is related to Newton's Laws.
  • Like energy where we had the transfer of energy (work), here we will also have the transfer of momentum (impulse).
