Students explore the concept of "transfer of momentum". In this physics lesson, students observe the results of two objects or people as they make contact in different ways. Students on roller blades and model cars of different weights are used as stationary or moving participants as students observe "transfer of momentum". Following the demonstration, students draw conclusions about laws of physics that were observed.
