Term: Winter 2017
Tags: momentum, conservation, kinetic, Energy, elastic, inelastic, collision, centerofmass, mass, rocket, propulsion, and perfectly
Name: Linear Momentum and Collisions
Description: These notes cover conservation of momentum and kinetic energy, and when the conservation equations apply in elastic and inelastic collisions between objects. Like in kinematics, momentum is split into components when working in multiple dimensions. Center of mass is also covered, albeit briefly, as is rocket propulsion.
