    Experiment Lost Momentum

    • 1405 Words
    • 6 Pages

    The graphs above demonstrate that there is a value, but theoretically this value should be zero. As demonstrated in Table 1, every trial lost momentum. As the formula for momentum is and the mass remained constant, the velocity must be the responsible factor. Additionally, the only the magnitude of is necessary to observe adherence to the conservation law. The conservation law states that should be equal to zero, and as this wasn’t observed in any trial, it can be said that the conservation law was ineffective in this system. This is also replicated in the loss of kinetic energy. Kinetic energy is being lost in the form of sound as the collision takes place. However, kinetic energy is a scalar quantity, therefore the difference between…

    Angular Momentum

    Angular velocity, with the addition of a product’s moment of inertia is what creates an angular momentum quantity (Bi 2014). Moving objects keep a constant velocity, however, if acted on by outside forces this would not occur. Say a moving object like, the planet Saturn keeps this constant speed, it thus keeps a constant momentum, since the system is conserved. This conserved system of the planet Saturn would be referred to as angular momentum, since Saturn rotates about an axis. Saturn is also…

    Table of Contents Introduction 2 Method 3 Results 4 Discussion 6 Conclusion 7 Plagiarism Report 6 Introduction The law of Conservation of Momentum states that the total linear momentum of an isolated system remains constant. This law is based on Newton’s third law (If body A exerts a force on body B, body B will exert an equal force but opposite force on body A). Thus when objects collide or explode apart, equal forces are exerted on the objects but in the opposite direction. The time of…

    principle of conservation of momentum. Despite the somewhat imposing name, this principle is actually quite intuitive in nature. To understand this principle, I utilize an example from my own life: duck hunting. While some may consider it a rather barbaric pastime, I rather enjoy the thrill of venturing into a marsh in the early hours of the morning and I love the satisfaction of dressing and cooking a prize. You know immediately when your shot is a successful one; a bird flying in one direction…

    every crevice imaginable to add even more absorption power to the device. In its final state, the device comprises itself of a Gatorade bottle with an inner chamber, cotton balls in the inner chamber and all around the exterior of the bottle, rice in between the inner and outer chamber of the Gatorade bottle, and pool noodles around the outside. Upon the device’s drop at seventy-five feet, the conclusion that the device would not work unmasks itself. Once my group discovers that the device…

    The first concept to go over here is kinetic energy and conservation of momentum. We know that when something is in motion, it has kinetic energy. This kinetic energy from the ball and bat collide, and for a moment (like the picture) the kinetic energy becomes potentially energy, and then back to kinetic energy in the opposite direction the ball was originally going. According to the law of conservation of momentum, the sum of the momentum of both the bat and the ball have to be the same…

    My Slapshot In Hockey

    • 285 Words
    • 2 Pages

    Last Thursday, I had a hockey practice, and before anyone else came on the ice, my brother Michael and I were just shooting around. To see how fast my slapshot is, I had him stand at the other end of the ice, and using his phone, see how long it took for my shot to go from one goal line to the other, exactly 60.96 meters. Keeping the puck on the ice the whole time during my shot, changing just the position of the puck, my slapshot took 4 seconds to cross the far goal line, making my slapshot…

    Final Momentum

    • 337 Words
    • 2 Pages

    Using the data obtained through the Labquest2 computer system, my group and I calculated exactly the initial momentum and kinetic energy, final momentum and kinetic energy, and percent of momentum and kinetic energy that was lost through these collisions. To calculate momentum we used the equation p_i=p_f which expands to m_1 v_1i+m_2 v_2i=m_1 v_1f+m_2 v_2f. We can say that our first hypothesis was accepted since in collisions 1 and 2 the total initial and final momentum was similar values.…

    The flips involves the jumper to first create a rotational motion around their centre of mass. This is done to create angular momentum which ensures the spin occurs and must have a net force greater than zero. The angular momentum occurs around the centre of mass for the dive, which is often around the belly button region on the body in a tight ball. Angular momentum is the product of angular velocity and rotational inertia. The momentum remains the same throughout the dive, however for the…

    getting whipsawed. What is momentum trading Momentum trading is piggybacking on a market moving strongly in one direction. The sharp move can either be because of a news, an event or earnings release. Usually, most traders miss getting in at lower levels and are afraid to enter fast-moving markets. Without a proper strategy, momentum trading can be detrimental to your trading…
