April 10- Conservation of Momentum






  • Look a bit more at the connections between center of mass, Newton's Laws and conservation of momentum.
  • Define impulse (the transfer of momentum).
  • Work on a few simple application of momentum conservation.
  • Look at other conservation laws.
Test corrections are due next Monday.

Exercises for Friday- 12-4Q, 12-10Q, 12-14Q

There are a pair of problems due next Wednesday.

Last time we were talking about weightlessness and the fact that gravity is NOT zero in space.  There are some very intersting physiological effects that occur when people are in weightless environments.
