Momentum and Impulse Flashcards

Momentum

The product of an object's mass and its velocity

Impulse

The product of the resultant/net force acting on an object and the time the net force acts on the object

A closed (isolated) system

It is a system on which the resultant/net external force is zero

Elastic collision

It is a collision in which the total momentum and total kinetic energy is conserved

Inelastic collision

It is a collision in which the total momentum and total kinetic energy is not conserved

State the principle of conservation of linear momentum

The total linear momentum of an isolated system remains constant (is conserved)

Cut dotted horizontal lines. Fold vertical line.
