Momentum is conserved for all collisions as long as external forces

... One glider is loaded so it has three times the mass of another glider. The loaded glider is initially at rest. The unloaded glider collides with the loaded glider and the two gliders stick together. Describe the motion of the gliders after the collision. Answer: The mass of the stuck-together glider ...

Depending on the physical properties of the wall (its elastic nature), the speed at which the ball rebounds from the wall upon colliding with it will vary. The diagrams below depict the changes in velocity of the same ball. For each representa ...

While the kg•m/s is the standard metric unit of momentum, there are a variety of other units which are acceptable (though not conventional) units of momentum. Examples include kg•mi/hr, kg•km/hr, and g•cm/s. Momentum is a vector quantity. To fully desc ...
