Messing with Momentum
Twenty-one thought-provoking questions about momentum and impulse fill the page. Physics enthusiasts describe momentum, relate it to impulse, describe conservation of momentum, and define two types of collisions. They apply equations in order to find the force of friction, impulse, velocity, and momentum. This makes an appropriate practice to assign before having your class experiment with momentum in the lab.
Typical Numeric Questions for Physics I - Momentum
Simple momentum computations and more complex collision computations can be found on these two worksheets. All of them can be answered by choosing from five possibilities. The first worksheet contains nine problems to solve, while the second contains five. An answer key is provided. You could assign the first part as homework and then give the shorter second part as a quiz.
Momentum and Conservation of Momentum
In this momentum worksheet, students calculate momentum from the mass and velocity of an object. Students learn about the Law of Conservation of Momentum. This worksheet has 8 matching, 6 fill in the blank, and 8 word problems.
For this momentum worksheet, students compare the momentum of different objects going at given speeds and acceleration. This worksheet has 6 problems to solve.
THE PHYSICS OF MOVING THINGS (AND NOT A MOMENTUM TOO SOON!)
Students list three examples of momentum found in their local environment; describe the importance of mass and velocity on momentum; and determine what is necessary to produce the greatest amount of momentum within a particular system.
Collisions adn Momentum: Bouncing Balls
Middle schoolers explore the concepts of potential and kinetic energy by bouncing assorted balls on different surfaces and calculating the momentum for each ball. They give examples of collisions and momentum in sports and understand that collisions and momentum play an important role in the design of safe automobiles.
In this momentum worksheet, high schoolers review the equations for finding momentum using the mass and speed. They solve eighteen problems using the equation for momentum to find the unknown.
Review of Linear Momentum
In this linear momentum worksheet, students calculate force, impulse and momentum to answer 50 multiple choice questions. They identify elastic and inelastic collision.
In this momentum worksheet, students review and compare forces acting on different objects and calculate momentum before a collision. This worksheet has 5 problems to solve.
What is Momentum?
In this momentum worksheet, students will calculate the maximum forward momentum of the Apollo 11 lunar spacecraft at three different stages of its space travel.
Physics 240: Momentum
In this momentum worksheet, students review the concepts associated with the conservation of momentum, kinetic energy, and collisions. This worksheet has 5 problems to solve.
The laws of momentum can lead to fun! Learners with visual impairments use bowling pins and a bowling ball to model the law of conservation of momentum. They take turns bowling with differing degrees of force to explore how energy is transferred depending on the force of the object with momentum. Great idea!
Nine questions about momentum make up this assignment. The first six questions require short answers that include writing out equations and defining terms. The remaining questions require the use of problem-solving skills. Being fairly brief, this would serve as a telling pop quiz!
Young Newtons solve nine momentum problems on a physics homework assignment. They tell which moving object has more momentum, compute average force, determine velocity, and more. Using this resource, you can assess your physics pupils' grasp of Newton's first law.
Cosmic Ray Momentum
Learners describe how cosmic rays achieve high kinetic energy via conservation of momentum.
Learners learn the concepts of momentum and its conservation, using the recoil of a cannon as an example. They examine how momentum is a vector, allowing its conservation to be applied to problems in 2 and 3 dimensions.
Momentum and Conservation of Momentum
In this momentum worksheet, students review the equation to solve for momentum and the Law of Conservation of Momentum. Students complete 8 matching, 6 fill in the blank, and 8 problems to solve.
Marbles and Momentum
Students examine the law of conservation of momentum. In this physics lesson, students play marbles in order to compare the mass of the marble and velocities effects. Students receive directions of the marbles game and collect data while playing marbles of how the varied mass of marbles effects each other. Students discuss in small groups the effect of small marbles onto large marbles.
Angular Momentum (Automaticity)
Second graders experience practicing with a wide variety of vocabulary terms that relate to the Vista/Module "Angular Momentum:" momentum, inertia, force; motion, direction, centripetal force; angular momentum, gyroscope, resist. They utilize their class science journals to complete their task with this lesson.
Momentum And Colliding Spheres
High schoolers explain that mass times velocity equals momentum. They investigate the impacts of collisions and their results and determine the vector of an incident.
